|5" x 7" Gouache|
Tuesday, May 24, 2016
The Saturday paint-out group returned to Deukmejian Wilderness Park last month for painting and a birthday lunch. We had a beautiful morning there. I was surprised to see bright new growth on the vines in the small vineyard, and water in the debris basin. On my previous visit I painted a watercolor, A Stone Barn, so I decided to try a gouache piece this time. The sun kept moving of course, so the 1914 stone barn began in shadow, then it was in some sunlight. Plein air painting has its challenges.
