Meadows on the Truckie River

To receive more information about this painting click here.

On the Truckie River just north west of Tahoe City is this beautiful meadow. North Tahoe Plein Air enlarged the boundaries in which the artists could paint this year and you could now paint most of Lake Tahoe and up the Truckie river. This spot was just down from the Alpine Meadows turn off where I painted "Alpine Vista" earlier. The shadows changed quite rapidly here so we came back a second day to finish our plein air paintings. Typically we don't like to spend more than a couple of hours on a painting at a time as the light will have changed significantly in that amount of time. It's better to come back a second day at the same hour if more time is needed. On the second day Christin Coy and Richard Lindenberg came down to paint the meadow and Carole Gray-Weihman was up just up ahead.
