On a warm Saturday the plein air group met at Pasadena City College. There are several areas of interest at the college that might make a good painting subject. We all gathered at the Planetarium and found our views to paint there. The college was founded in 1921, and I just read that the Observatory/Planetarium was dedicated in 1931 by Albert Einstein. Wow! Getting a full view of the building was hard because it's so close to a parking lot. I was looking for shade too. Several of us found a spot to paint from and had a challenge painting the ever-changing shadows on the curved, white building. A fun morning as always!
