Thoughts on location
I did two hikes recently. One, with Armando, to the waterfalls at Eaton Canyon. Another one today to the Vernal Pools in the Santa Rosa Plateau. The watercolor sketches here are the result of 10/15 minutes of taking a break from walking.
I really went to the Santa Rosa Plateau in search of wildflowers to paint. And there were so many. But not in patches of color. So I looked around for other subjects and the place was so beautiful that I ended up walking for about an hour and a half with my backpack trying to take it all in. I will soon post the result of that trip but here are my sketches for now.
