Here is an example of my underdrawing, or how I start my paintings. I am back in Yosemite, invited to a reunion trip of past Artist in Residence. This was a collection of impressive artists, photographers, painters and sculptors. The group ranged from 25 to 75 years old. We hiked into the high Sierra, while our gear was carried by mule train. We had beer, booze, medicine, equipment, food,...etc, all ferreted to 6-8000 feet. It was amazing. There was a physician and two Sierra club cooks at our disposal. I was invited on two or three of these trips. I have very fun memories of each.
