Sunset Peoh Point

This was a brief scene I saw in Cle Elum, WA, and painted it very quickly. I painted this right at sunset from the other side of valley. I drove up on top of a hill, and set up my easel with plenty of time before sunset, and start sketching the composition. By the time the sun light was getting low, and colors started to warm up, with pink-ish glow on the rocky face of the peak, I was ready to put the right colors on canvas. I didn't have much time to put a lot paint, but managed to cover the canvas. Later, I finished this painting at home. So it is technically "semi-plein-air," but that's O.K. I'm still happy with how it came out.
