Another View

As I mentioned in my recent post on painting at the landmark Gamble House in Pasadena, I would be returning soon.  I was there again with another paint-out group a few days ago.  The day was bright and sunny, in contrast with when I painted Gamble House Watercolor a month before.  This spectacular residence is such a challenge to paint.  Its architectural details and subtle color all add to the difficulty.  I thought I would try again to paint the building as silhouetted as I could to keep the details to a minimum.  I found a nice view of the home's north side as I sat under some trees behind the charming garage, which is now the book and gift shop.  My "silhouette" plan is coming along.
