A recent Saturday paint-out was at Pasadena's new Desiderio Park. Not only is there a spectacular view of the 1912 Colorado Street Bridge but there's a nice view of the 1920 Vista Del Arroyo Hotel. It's extensive and has many windows. Lots of editing required to do a quick sketch. I tried sketching with the pens I'm enjoying using. I also added some watercolor. My previous watercolor of the old hotel, now a U.S. Court of Appeals, A New Park.
A few weeks before, we met at Eliot Middle School in Altadena, architects Marston and Mayberry. Our pieces are meant for a future auction to benefit the school. My previous gouache piece of the school is here, Some Architecture.
