I'm always excited to see what I can find to paint when we meet at the Pasadena Water & Power plant. The entrance is on State Street behind the main structures. State is sort of a dead end street so there isn't much traffic, and there's a wild hillside for artists to paint from. On our last visit I painted a gouache piece while I sat at the base of the hill, West On State. I wanted to try the same view in watercolor. This time I added the utility poles I left out on the gouache painting. The plant is still undergoing construction to update. I hope some of the characteristic buildings will remain. It's been a prominent feature in Pasadena for so long. I'm looking forward to painting more views.
