I was planning on refining yesterday’s sketch but when I got up to the college a large delivery truck was blocking the view that I painted yesterday. As it turned out, this was good luck for me. I walked on back into an area known as the Mediterranean Garden and once I got to looking at the options, painted very happily for the morning. The shapes of the plants and the colors of the rocks and succulents were just gorgeous and lots of fun to paint.
This is a 17 X 12-inch gouache sketch on black paper.
