One thing that sort of irritates me about being in the South Bay is there is not a very sharp contrast between the seasons. The main difference is when it's not sunny, it's overcast, and it's not as warm. I love seeing the leaves change in the fall, playing in the snow, etc, so it's a little bit of a bummer, but one great thing about the area I live is there are great eucalyptus trees to paint year 'round. They don't lose their leaves and they have a lot of color in them. They always give me a fun challenge.
This gouache sketch was done on a grey day from my bedroom window while I nursed a cold.
