Spring at Descanso

One of the paint-out groups was back at Descanso Gardens in La Canada-Flintridge recently.  We like to meet there often because there are so many great views to paint.  I see this will be my seventh post about the gardens.  My previous visit in March was to paint the tulips, which I posted in The Tulips!  That was a gouache piece and I spent so long walking around on my most recent visit, I decided to do a gouache again since I paint those at a smaller size.  The roses were blooming and I probably should have tried something different, some flowers, instead of a landscape.  Will have to consider that for next time.  As usual there were many school kids on field trips as well as families visiting.  It's always a busy place.

  1. This is great, Sherry - makes me wonder what the parent and child are looking at. Your red "pops" really engage the eye and the foliage is wonderful, too!

    1. Thanks Joani, I really appreciate your comments!

  2. Gorgeous, Sherry. This garden really brings out some of your best work. I remember your Tulips very well, and loved that, too.
