Last Light at Hall Ranch

After I finished up the Hall Ranch 9x12 I saw the last bit of light on these right bluffs and decided to go for it. I spun my easel around and scrambled to get a 6" x 8" on my easel. I quickly sketched the composition with the light in this position. I put some broad strokes of color down because I knew the light wouldn't last. Within 5 minutes the light was gone from the red bluffs and I had to finish that part from memory. I finished the mid ground and added the blue sage to the forground.
