Painting Fall Colors at Villa Montalvo

On a clear, warm fall morning I met with Suhita to paint at Villa Montalvo. It was a brilliant day filled with a lot of sun and conversations, searching for a perfect angle to paint the barn, for an intact araucaria seed and yellow ginkgo leaves. My palette had some freshly refilled yellows which helped to catch the brightness of that grass field and I had a lot of fun fighting the shapes of the barn.

This is one of the places where you can spend a whole day or a week painting - especially when colors are changing and you have a friend with you.
