This was a fun one to make… notice the splashes of blue across the page at the bottom. That’s from plump raindrops divebombing my palette last week during a slight sprinkle the day after the storm. The creeks are still not running, but I did find this small pool in Cold Springs Canyon. I think the need to work fast loosened me up in a nice way. I plan to make a more finished version of the sketch below in oil on a repurposed cabinet door.
Hopefully we’ll get some more water falling from the sky later this week!
