I haven't painted in Pasadena's Central Park since early last summer. The park has a great view of the famous and distinctive old Castle Green Hotel. This was my fourth time painting the hotel. I painted a gouache piece on my last visit and posted that in Castle Green Revisited. I wanted to try a watercolor again and it was a beautiful day there. The sun was out so we had some shadows on the hotel to add interest! The park was busy in the morning where I was sitting, with a private trainer and his client, lots of loud grass mowing, and squirrels. I feed some squirrels at home and it seems the squirrels in the parks know this and hang around looking at me for a hand-out of nuts. Maybe on our next paint-out at the park I'll try a view of the lawn bowling, and bring some peanuts of course.
