What a nice morning we had painting at the Southwest Museum again recently. It's been over a year since the last paint-out there, but I sat in the same spot to paint my watercolor. My watercolor from November 2012 is posted here Southwest Museum with a bit of the museum's history. Although I sat in the museum parking lot at the same picnic table, I planned to avoid painting the building's tower as I did last time. Maybe I should have tried it again to hopefully see an improvement after a year plus. Instead, I looked across the Arroyo Seco valley from the hilltop museum to the hilltop to the east. I see watercolor artists I admire painting rooftops so well that I thought it would be a challenge to try a piece from my bird's eye view. I really had fun with this view of the rooftops and distant hillside.
