Lacy Park

It was wonderful to see a few friends to paint with last Saturday.  I missed our previous plein air outing so it felt like it had been awhile since I saw them.  The weather this summer has been unusually hot and I was looking forward to painting at beautiful Lacy Park in San Marino where we were meeting.  We actually ended up meeting outside the West entrance.  There is an extensive rose arbor on that side of the park.  It's an enjoyable view to paint, and trees for shade, without paying the weekend entrance fee for non-residents.  We'll do that next time!

Here is my watercolor and photo of my approximate view.  It's 8"x10".

  1. I am really enjoying all your plein air paintings, Sherry - your paintings really bring the places to life, far more than the photos do. Dawn
