Farnsworth in Altadena, what a beautiful park! I painted there a few weeks ago with one of the plein air groups. I hadn't heard of Farnsworth which is a stunning location in the foothills. The property was purchased by Los Angeles County in 1921 and became a park in the 1930's. The centerpiece is an impressive two-story arts and crafts, American craftsman style stone building completed by the WPA in 1934. The day started off a bit dreary but some sun finally came out. I always like to use the light and shadows in my watercolor.
