Cottonwood Sketch- plein air in Montana

Cottonwood Sketch                8" x 10"                       oil        
I was painting plein air today and these are some of the many groups of Cottonwood trees near the Big Horn river in Montana.    
It is around 90, so I was feeling pretty toasty out there and nearly melting into my shoes! More how weather, scouting with a camera and maybe painting tomorrow.

Pin It

What beautiful trees Mary. Brave you in that heat. I paint plein air through glass when it is that hot! Give me a seat by the window and I am happy.
One of the states I want to visit is Montana. I hear it is magnificent. Love the cottonwoods. We have them here but not quite as vibrant a green because of less water. My fav time is the fall when they really hit the yellow and gold colors
