Landscape Pastels!

After attending a fantastic gallery showing of my old instructor Gary Geraths and his lovely wife @ Bunny Gunner gallery, I was inspired to dust off the old pastels and get outdoors! Returning to Malibu Canyon for a day of hiking and drawing felt so amazing. I happened to run into my pal Andrew Hem and his Otis guache landscape painting class. What are the odds!? How great!

The last time I was there was for the final Los Angeles Swimming meetup before Jeff "Throb" Edwards took off for the east coast. Some rock climber broke his foot and had to be boated out by the mega rescue squad. It put a pause on the cliff jumping madness, but I loved it cause I got to draw gear. 

The place is incredible if you haven't been...
