I did this little painting using some old black and white photos as reference. I don't usually paint from photos but I'm feeling a bit more confident lately and this was a fun exercise. Some friends of mine are heading down to Yosemite to hike Half Dome this Sunday and they invited me to tag along. I won't be doing the hike but I will be doing as much painting as I can get in while they're on the trail. It's going to be a long day but I'm really looking forward to it.
