Taos Plein Air Painting

'Afternoon Break'           5x7       pastel
The weather has been unsettled since we've been here in Taos.  Some rain, wind and thunderstorms. On the bright side the skies have been amazing. Very dark and moody.  Today it rained on and off so I decided to just paint at the dining table of our casita. I had several great views of the mountains so I just painted what I saw as the weather changed. I managed to paint five quick 5x7's using mostly Terry Ludwig's Southwest pastel set.
