So, having moved I'm a newby with a painting group again! It was great that the Nevada City Plein Air group were so welcoming and friendly, I felt at home right away. Plein air starts early up here - 8 am (OMG!) as it gets too hot to be sitting out by around 11 am. This was a beautiful site though, a lovely organic farm with fruit, veggies and flowers abounding. There were lots of bees buzzing around the lavender, and a few birds twittering in the trees, so it was a peaceful scene. This little sketch finished off my handmade sketchbook, so now I need to make another one!
