Yesterday, January 2, the Saturday paint-out group met at Memorial Park in Sierra Madre. My first painting for 2016! It's been two years since the group painted there and I painted a gouache piece, Holidays Coming. That day was cold and dreary but this year we had sunshine. It was still cold though, at least for Southern California. Last Saturday we got very cold, especially our fingers, so I was feeling a little conservative about a painting. I decided on a small watercolor where I could try to improve some areas of my painting I'm thinking about. I chose a view of homes at the north end of the park. There is a pretty church just to the right, maybe next time I will attempt it. Its steeple is deceivingly tall I think. We had such a nice turnout of painters, very inspiring to see everyone after the holidays. Looking forward to a great year ahead!
