Azaleas!

A few Saturdays ago the plein air group met at the Pasadena Museum of History.  It was a perfect day for painting.  The main museum building is the 1906 Feynes Mansion which I haven't attempted to paint yet.  I don't think any of us knew that the azaleas surrounding one of the fountains would be so beautifully blooming.  I love the fountain area's dappled light, and have painted there a few times.  The watercolor I painted on my visit in July, South Side, was painted from this area.  Although this view below is similar to my previous piece, the spectacular azaleas had to be painted this time.
