A paint-out last month was at the Pasadena Museum of History. I painted there a year ago with another group and posted that watercolor in Another Museum! Most painters were taking on the main museum building, a 1906 Italian Villa which didn't appeal to me. Maybe next time. A pair of mallard ducks that were spending the morning at the beautiful birdbath caught my eye. The day started out overcast again so I tried a small gouache. Both ducks flew off but soon the male returned. He kept leaving and returning, seeming to check if his friend was there. She wasn't. I decided to add him to my gouache piece even though ducks are usually in ponds, not small birdbaths. I hope the two got together later that day!
