I went hiking today in lovely little Millard Creek in Altadena, CA, about 30 minutes or less from my apartment. Our hiking crew was also an artistic one, so while climbing around in the creek, dodging spiders, and hopping boulders, we were looking for some places to paint. This was my first time at attempting plein air gouache painting (and first time using gouache in yeeeaaaars!). So I am only showing this quick little thumbnail I did. :) There will be more painting sessions to come, which I am beyond excited for. Mmmmmmmm....nature!
