Ranch Afternoon

One of the painting groups decided to meet in the late afternoon to try a piece with the sun going down.  We decided to go back to Ward Ranch in Sierra Madre since there is a nice view of the mountains which would change with the changing light.  It was last December when I was there last and painted this gouache piece, December at Ward Ranch.  I ended up painting from almost the same spot this time and did a watercolor.  Well, the sunlight was certainly changing fast on the mountains.  What a challenge to decide how to chose which shadow pattern to go with.  We all had fun at this challenging paint-out.
