Fall at the Old Mill

It was another beautiful day in October for a paint-out with one of the groups at the The Old Mill, El Molino Viejo.  The wonderful old adobe building, from 1816, and surrounding patios and gardens had some lovely fall light.  The California Art Club maintains a permanent gallery in one room so we also wanted to see the current show, The Missions of California.

I've painted at the Old Mill quite a few times now and have posted all of my watercolors and one gouache piece.  My last post about painting there was Spring at the Old Mill.  And almost exactly a year ago, I painted two pieces in the Pomegranate Patio, The Pomegranate Patio.  A visit and paint-out there seemed appropriate for fall 2013.  In October last year, the pomegranates were everywhere but this year I guess they got ripe earlier and most were picked.  I had to add some of the remaining fruits to my view since some nice red ones were hanging over where I was sitting.  Now I'm looking forward to a spring visit.
