I was back at the beautiful Pasadena Museum of History last month with one of the paint-out groups. We only had a short time to paint since we were there to see the show Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden. Some artist friends had paintings in the juried show so we had to check it out.
The museum is housed in a 1906 mansion with beautiful surrounding grounds. The day was overcast and dreary and I was looking for a bit of sun and shadow for my view to paint. I didn't quite find any sun but I found a nice view of some pathways, trees, and mountains. It turned out that the spot where I was sitting at the top of the property, was what I had painted two years ago on my first paint-out there. Looking at that previous watercolor, Another Museum!, this time I was sitting in the light area between the two hedges. I tried a gouache piece since I paint them smaller and they dry more quickly. Just finished in time for our discussion before the show.
