The Saturday plein air group painted at Lacy Park in San Marino recently. I didn't realize but it's been a year since I painted my watercolor Park Crows there. My recent paint-out at the park was my fourth time painting there and it's always lovely with a nice variety of trees. The park has an extensive rose garden and beautiful arbor area that I would like to try to paint sometime when the roses are blooming. But, the roses were still looking very pruned for our paint-out that day.
The park was busy Saturday morning with dog walkers, soccer games, a dog training class, and kids learning to ride their bikes (the perfect place for that). I had a hard time deciding on a view to paint this time. I ended up just taking a seat on a bench by the entrance and doing a quick-ish gouache piece of the main walkway. Had to include some dog walkers!
