Casting Practice

What a beautiful Saturday we had a few weeks ago for painting.  We met at the Lower Arroyo Seco Park Casting Pond in Pasadena.  The pond is always peaceful and a little mysterious looking.  I painted there once before and posted that piece in The Casting Pond.  The water in the pond was low because of the drought here but it still reflected the surrounding trees beautifully.  There was no one practicing their casting on my last visit.  This time, maybe since it was a Saturday, there were several people trying to improve their casting skills.  One man had his waders and walked out into the pond.  He also had several different fishing poles to try...beautiful and fun to watch.

8 x 10" Watercolor


  1. I always love your renditions so much better than the photos you post! The water just shimmers in this one, and you captured a wonderful moment, Sherry.

  2. Filtered light in your painting beautiful Sherry, and the fishermen so good

    1. This one was fun, watching the people and painting.

  3. Perfect reflections. I had such trouble trying to figure out how to put in that rim. You handled it like the pro you are!!!
