I was inspired by Open Season with this one.

Lemons on lime

Now to drink the lemonade.

I haven't painted the coast in a good long while and this is my first attempt since I've been in LA.  I'm eager to do more.

this one is from the first open painting session I went to since being in LA.

These last two are some 15 min poses I did at another open session in LA.  They have some sort of sky light so the lighting was quite different than what I have gotten used to in Seattle. The color was popping or it might have just been my mood at the time.  I'm not bitching but the poses are shorter than what I'm used to for painting.  I'll just have to adjust or break out the charcoal and pencils and actually draw next time.
