The Sespe Gorge One - in the Sespe Wilderness

I made this painting while on my annual backpacking trip on Memorial Day. I used acrylic cause oil paint wouldn't dry fast enough to throw it in a backpack right away. Believe it or not I forgot to bring blue! Kinda crucial when you are painting the landscape. What I did bring was Alizarian Crimson - which is a bluish red and pthalo green which is a bluish green. They are compliments but together they can form a decent shade of blue.
