Last week my plein-aire group painted at Crystal Reservoir, which is about 1/4 of the way up the Pikes Peak Highway. This reservoir was closed to the public for years, but is now open for bank fishing, hiking, and viewing. It's one of the reservoirs which supplies the water to Colorado Springs. This view is looking at Pikes Peak from the back.
One of fun challenges about plein-aire painting is the quickness which you have to paint, due to the changing light. When I left, the clouds were moving in causing the shadows, lights and darks to change. I had most of this done, and used a reference photo to just add the final touches.
