I've been painting plein air studies in gouache lately. So far, it's a great fit: fast drying time, good mix of opaque and transparent color, and perhaps best of all, easy clean up and much less expensive support (paper). Enjoy. Feedback welcome.

I'm learning to paint Plein air in a medium new for me, gouache. My goal is to be able to choose the best medium for a work of art, based on the unique needs of the subject.

Lately, my Plein air work has been watercolors. The sky makes for a great watercolor subject.

Friday was a beautiful day to paint here on the coast of Northern California.   This 6x8 oil is a more a study in paint handling than anything else.  I wanted to experiment with marbleizing colors through heavy paint application.

I was able to get to the coast to paint a little bit today.  This is Pescadero State Beach (CA).  Nice to get out of the 90-degree Bay Area weather for a bit.
