Santa Ana Winds


The wind is blowing in from the desert so I had to sketch the movement of the trees. The humidity drops and the heat skyrockets with these winds. I tried to paint outdoors but I couldn't get enough water on the paper and a few times I loaded my brush with luscious color and by the time my brush touched the paper it had dried hard as a stick.
