This is a quick painting I did in late September 2022 of the mountains of the Angeles National Forest. This is done in more of an impressionistic style. The drab green of the mountains and hills are dotted with the saturated red blooms of the California Buckwheat. I arrived late in the morning, when fog was still draped down the sides of the mountains. I was surprised there were three other plein air painters already painting the same scene! They left the mountain soon after I arrived as the fog lifted off the hills. Without the cover, it was very sunny and hot.
