The small town of Keeler is an excellent place to wander about and sketch and paint. As a fan of architecture, I love the variety of quirky and unusual buildings. I spent a couple of afternoons there, doing both small sketchbook studies and finished paintings on Fabriano watercolor paper. I did a few variations of the same subject.
I went to Lone Pine a few years ago for the annual Henry Fukuhara Paint Out. Watercolor artists from all over gather for this five-day workshop. We go from Lone Pine to the Alabama Hills and over to the small town of Keeler, on the shore of the Owens Lake. These next two posts are all about that trip.
