A few weeks ago it was exciting to visit a new to me plein air location for the Saturday paint-out. It was a very dreary and overcast morning. Our destination was a horse ranch which looked terrific with many views for possible paintings. There was a wonderful old red barn, many horse stalls and corrals. A few colts looked out at us from nearby stalls. It's away from major streets, near some hillside horse and hiking trails which was a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere for painting. A young girl and her Arabian horse were having a lesson and I enjoyed eavesdropping while I painted. I didn't add a horse to my watercolor and I had to leave out some fences. Maybe I'll try a horse next time.
