Fuller Seminary

I came across a watercolor from a couple months ago that I haven't posted yet.  I painted it on a Saturday paint-out with the group at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena.  This location was also where I first painted with the Saturday group over a year ago.  At that time I had only been to a few plein air paint-outs and although I liked a couple areas in my painting, I was hoping to improve on my second visit.  The Fuller campus is located in what was a residential neighborhood.  It was a very fine old Pasadena neighborhood with large, beautiful homes which are now used by the seminary.  The homes are still on their old street, surrounded by mature trees and lovely gardens, a really pretty place to paint.  I chose a view past one of the old homes to some of Pasadena's downtown buildings for some background interest.
