The sun’s asettin’ and we’re still fishing, catching large mouth bass.
I painted a masonite board with QOR watercolor ground which allows me to paint on a surface that, untreated, will not absorb the watercolor pigments.

This cone is a lot larger and harder that most of the ponderosa cones I’ve painted. We found it in Southern California. I wonder if I identified it correctly although in searching for visual info on it, it most likely resembles the ponderosas.
