An alla prima studio attempt after a failed plein air on site try early on a July morning. The light changed so quickly, literally in 15 minutes, it was impossible to retain/record the shadow vs light on the mountains...
I will try a new one soon with less detail and perhaps a change in color to try and capture this to relive my 1st impression of the place...
