James Gurney issued a Weed Painting Challenge on his blog and since I love plants, I thought I’d take him up on it.  It’ll be fun to see what other artists come up with as well!  We had to paint plein air and post a photo of our piece in process with the subject at the same time.  This was my first time attempting to paint outside with gouache (normally I use ink and watercolor) and I’m fairly happy with it.  It was a misty, foggy day which meant I didn’t have to deal with the shadows moving at least.  Enjoy!
