Following the watercolor workshops that ended our summer youth programming, we've had two hikes into the desert to do plein air painting, one to Devil's canyon and one to Indian Hill.

I have done a watercolor everyday since the workshops ended. My first watercolor of the mountains was very heavily brown, but that was all wrong. If you have ever watched the mountains you know they change color. They can be orange, tan, purple and navy depending on the time of day. I've become obsessed with showing these colors in the paintings. The one posted here is from a very orange time of day at Indian Hill.
