Eucalyptus Grove in the Rain

Eucalyptus Grove in the Rain

My cousin Ann Lewis, who is an amazing plein air painter, visited me this past weekend. The weather was stormy but with only three days to paint together, we could not let the wild weather stop us from going out and painting. We went to four different sites and had our easels blown over, our paintings rained on, and a tremendous amount of fun. It was great to paint so closely with such a creative artist and a kindred spirit.

One of the places we painted was a eucalyptus grove at Balboa Park. If you look at the painting above, you can see watermarks that the raindrops made as I scurried back to the car during a cloudburst. This is my favorite from the weekend because I like the composition and reds. It is a 12 X 18-inch gouache painting.
