In the Lagunas

I started this last week when I was painting up in the Lagunas, about an hour east of San Diego. Like many such paintings, it was not quite finished when it was time to leave. This morning, I added the suggestion of small plants in the foreground and now it feels finished to me.

This gouache painting is on a quarter sheet of Stonehenge black watercolor paper. I like the way the paper handles wet paint and absorbs it deep into the grain of the paper, yet supports the dry paint in staying on the surface of the page.
