oil on canvas 12X16
Mosquito Lake is a beautiful lake up in Northern California on the way to Lake Tahoe. The lake is on Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevadas at about 10,000 ft. elevation (Alpine County). It is one of our favorite day trip destinations. It seems that every time we go there, the water is perfectly still and makes for perfect photos! I have been meaning to paint this for months and finally got to it. I am working on it in my painting class and should be done with it this week. I have to add some more details and glaze in some more darks at the shoreline, but it is almost finished. When it is completed, I will post some photos of the start-to-finish progress.
