Pena Blanca Lake

Spending the day at this remote location near the Mexican border offered the opportunity to record morning and afternoon light in an oil sketch and a pastel drawing.

 

View of Pena Blanca Lake, a lake stocked with fish and popular with local picnickers.

In the afternoon there were some lovely high vistas which made for a dramatic view of boulders and water.
