Plein Air (part 1 of 4)

Last weekend, I met up with 2 other painters at St. Vincent's Church in Marin. I decided to try a medium I haven't touched since art school...gouache! Most of you probably recall the weather reaching the high 90's on Sunday. So finding a shaded area to set up was key. Here's the view behind the church and what seems to be the San Pablo Bay.
