|"Palm Desert Morning" 12 x 16 oil|
Fortunately, we had a vacation rental that had a shady balcony (it was sunny and 80 degrees!) I set up my plein air easel there and did the view twice - once during the morning, and once in the afternoon sunset time. I was able to sit down frequently and I did not have to lug my supplies around. It was the perfect solution to my current condition.
The day I actually painted my "sunset" painting, there weren't very many clouds. So I drew from my memory of the night before's clouds and did my own artistic license here....
