It's been over three years since I painted at Defender's Parkway in Pasadena. On that visit I looked to the east and tried a watercolor of a distant glimpse of downtown Pasadena, Defenders Parkway. Since this small park is located at the main intersection of the Tournament of Roses Parade, bleachers were already set up for the New Years Day parade so a view to paint in that direction was out. There are miles of bleachers to be set up before January 1st. so they start early. Checking the west side of the park for a view to paint, there is the Colorado Street Bridge entrance, foothills and hillside homes, and a freeway offramp. I really liked a view across the freeway offramp to some eucalyptus trees and a distant hillside for my small watercolor. While we painted, it was fun to see photographers coming by with clients for photos on the famous bridge.
