A Rare October Rain in San Diego

Rain in October is not what I expected to wake up to this morning in San Diego, never mind that it was less than a quarter inch, it still was rain. I walked up to a mesa with a terrific view off to the north-west at San Diego State University, a place from which I often draw. I hoped it might be a great morning to paint clouds and it was. And I even got to try my hand at rainy clouds. The black paper was perfect for this.

As the clouds cleared I got a second more abstract sketch. I used wet into wet and liked the way the clouds and colors merged.
