Black and Tan

Ink & Watercolor, 8" x 16" image, 18" x 24" frame

I drive by this spot on the 101 Freeway everyday I come home from work.  It’s coming down the grade near Parkway Calabasas, between the San Fernando Valley and the Conejo Valley.  This year (2015), the color of the tall grass as it dried has been almost golden, definitely straw colored.  It’s been amazing, especially when the wind blows it in waves.  Both this painting and the “In A Ladyface Mood” painting are in the same area, trying to capture the look and vibe of that.  I don’t think I got the color right, but it’s still a painting that I really like.  I hope you do too! :>)
