"Lavender by the Bay", Gouache, 5" x 7", painted in my Stillman and Birn sketchbook

I enjoy playing around with gouache.  I find the colors can be intense when you want it, yet you can easily subdue them as needed.  Much like pastel really, as they are opaque.

This is of a lavender field which is not too far from where I live.  It does take about an hour to get there, but it is so worth the drive.  The photos I get are gorgeous, and I have a hard time deciding which one to paint.
