The leader and organizer of our Saturday paint-out group had a "house painting" project for us last weekend. An old friend of hers asked her to paint, in watercolor of course, her home in San Marino. We all thought it would be fun to meet there to try our hand at painting the house. We always enjoy new subjects. I didn't know what kind of house to expect to attempt. San Marino has a very wide variety of home sizes and styles. I've been on two past paint-outs where ornate Victorian houses were the subject and I was overwhelmed with the details. So I was happy to see that it was a simple Mid-Century modern. I thought gouache would work well for this piece. I loved the tree shadows on the stucco which moved quickly with the sun.
