Sierra Madre Villa

I'm late with my blog posts for February and very late with this watercolor I painted in November.  We returned to the Villa Del Sol D'Oro, the 1928 Wallace Neff designed villa in Sierra Madre.  Now Alverno, a private high school, it's a special place to have the opportunity to visit and paint.  This is my previous piece painted there of the west side, The Villa Revisited.  For my recent visit I had decided to try the north side of the villa.  After finishing, I noticed the east side might be fun to try next time.
