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.
