I need to post a watercolor instead of a gouache but I have this gouache piece ready, so here it goes. The paint-out group that meets quarterly to plan our locations was back at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in June. My last post about an Arboretum painting was Yellow Trumpets! Our meeting takes awhile so painting time is a little short. I had a greenhouse in mind for my painting but then when I looked at it again, it didn't appeal that day. Running out of time, I visited the area of "Garden Vignettes" and chose the Mediation Garden. It was shady and I liked the variation of plants, white roses and a willow tree. A peacock was also hanging around there which is so much fun to see. A peahen and her chicks on a walkway near the cafe were certainly used to people. I really need to add one to a painting sometime!
