Stones at Harvest Preserve. 11x14 watercolor. 

Did this yesterday in difficult circumstances; hot, sunny, very windy. With my workshops lined up I was curious to see what sort of day would be impossible for participants to do field work in.

I left the sky white and also only indicated parts of the foreground grass. Leaving some areas of a watercolor open gives them a fresh feel.
