The plein air painting group met at the Old Mill in San Marino, CA again. It was really a mill, the grist mill for the San Gabriel Mission, built in 1816. It was featured in my blog post in September titled "The Old Mill".
The predicted rain was delayed so we painters had a nice but overcast morning to paint at the mill. One of the features of the property is the Pomegranate Patio. In September I mentioned that the pomegranates weren't red and ripe yet. Now in October, the ones in the sun look beautiful, but there is still some paler fruit on the shadier, north sides of the trees. A few of the pomegranates were ripe enough to split open. Several artists were drawing and painting the gorgeous lower fruit but I still felt like trying a wider view. Here is my painting (8"x10"), photo of my view, and a photo of the beautiful fruit on the trees.
