Decided this morning to do a plein air painting and half towards downtown thought "Hey, why am I not painting my local mountain - Mount Diablo?" I know that mountain intimately well, having cycled up it to the tune of 2 million feet of vertical climb. Forgive me but I didn't cycle - I took my car this time.

Or is it lemonaide? Or lemonaid? So many questions.
Anyway, here's a practice collection of pigments. Purely made up image to try some effects. Nothing too fancy and certainly not ready for prime time. But ready for a Crow's Prose post? Sure, it's up for that.

Paint and Pixels - The Color of Art.
Love watercolors but lost at sea (Get it? Sea? Water?!) with the details? Master the color wheel, learn how colors complement and combine, and then tame them on your paper. See how your iPad or tablet can become your painting’s new BFF! You’ll conceptualize your art before picking up your brush and jump back and forth to validate your design choices before By digitally supporting your goals, you’ll supercharge your art. Emphasis will be on enhancing your fundamental technical understanding of paint and/or pixels. Supply list will be distributed in first class and emailed
beforehand to registered students. If using, bring iPads/tablets fully charged. No class 10/31.
Yes, that's right. It's a new semester at Mount Diablo Adult Education and my bright and shiny new class is open for enrollment as of yesterday. And filling up fast! If you're in the area (East Bay, CA) and want to increase your learnin', here's your place! Be there or be desaturated.
