I loved how many reflections I saw on this classic Airstream in the campground near Zion. I tried to capture them, at the same time thinking of simplifying them. As for all my paintings on this trip, this was also painted plein air and alla prima. Alla prima refers to wet paint into wet paint, all done in one painting session. It helps if the first layers of paint are quite thin, then you can build up subsequent layers quite easily. Did I just say easily? Ha! Sometimes there is success, sometimes I scrape it all off with a knife and start over.
