Tenaya Lake Yosemite plein air painting Day #2 of Project 12.

I heard from several people about a missing image on yesterday's post. WiFi has been a problem with sloooow speed and limited time. I thought I had uploaded my photo, but found that it wasn't there. I think it is due to the fact that I have higher speed at home and thought it had uploaded, but hadn't. With my daughter and her family being here, I have been trying to limit my computer time. It is difficult to do it all, certainly not a good way to start.
Anyway, what drew me to this scene was the contrast of the dark pines against the light of the background, but also the colors of the water. So much fun to paint. We had lunch and hiked around Tenaya Lake. I stopped to paint where the water goes out of the lake into a small stream.
Here is the finished painting, followed by yesterday's painting, if you didn't see that one.
