Spring Hike in California: Painting Greens with Gouache

Spring in California is moving slowly but is gifting us some magnificent days!
I got a chance to look at the hills that are very green and paint them with gouache. I am slowly moving to a better gouache palette - but this super fast option still is the best solution for sketching on a hike!


  1. These are terrific sketches, Nina. But what is your "superfast option"?

    1. thank you! My superfast option is an old pencil tin which I use as a palette and then take with me on a hike without cleaning it :) Plus a water brush and a paper towel/painting rug.
