A summer path for World Watercolor Month today. I am always inspired by the golden hills and dark green oaks trees of California.

|Gouache and watercolor in Strathmore journal.|
California Poppies are one of my favorite wildflowers. I didn't get to see many this year because of this crazy staying at home time, so I thought I would paint some. These were done in my Strathmore watercolor journal for World Watercolor Month.

I love the Yellow Billed Magpies that hang out in the trees around our home. They are such beautiful birds and are only found in the Central California Area. This is for day 3 of the World Watercolor Challenge 2020, I am a day behind so hopefully I will catch up today.
I pray everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!

I am participating in World Watercolor Month 2020 and these two gouache paintings are day l and 2.
I have been painting in gouache lately and really enjoying it. I love the velvety mat finish, it reminds me a lot of my pastels but less messy!
Day 1 is an oak tree that grows next to my house and day 2 is the house finches that live in it. There are other birds that call the tree home at different times too, like Magpies, Crows, Scrubjays, Owls, and of course I can't forget about the Acorn Woodpeckers that hide their acorn stash in the tree.

This has been a great challenge but I am so relieved that this is the last day! It's been a wonderful exercise because it has pushed me to be more creative and to go out of my comfort zone a few time. Hope everyone had a great time with this challenge and thanks to Leslie Saeta for hosting it!

Well, I really got behind on the challenge so I thought I would take the opportunity to post 4 more paintings that are in my current show at Very Ventura Gift Shop and Gallery in Ventura. I am hoping to get a painting done tonight and post tomorrow for the last day of the challenge!
