Day 6 of the 31 day challenge for January.

When I was out plein air painting I came across the Mapleton Lake. I had driven past it a few times however I decided to stop for a closer look. I walked right around it and took a ton of photos thinking how good a subject it would make.

I am considering doing a series on water in the landscape so this is a great source of inspiration for me.

This is a quick 15 minute study to explore ideas. I will definitely head back to this location again for some larger works.

My goal is to try out new ideas and different compositions. Experiment, play and have fun. By painting daily of course it will improve my skills as well.

I will sell most of these sketches on Ebay for no reserve auctions. Some will be used as ideas for larger works, and some may become episodes of Learn To Paint TV.
