After a run/hike up Fern Canyon (shin pain is back), I stocked up on empty paint tubes and a new watercolor sketchbook and palette box and bushwhacked up Shanahan Ridge to my spot from last summer. Despite the overcast conditions I tried painting a lichen-covered boulder and a cut tree stump, neither turning out great. I was preoccupied with my shin. I don't need to be doing that much vert and should have known better. Painting time ~90 minutes.
