On April 4th we were painting at Arlington Garden. I expected to see the field of red poppies as we saw last year but there were just a few as compared to April '14. I painted two pieces of the poppies at one paint-out last year and posted those pieces in The Red Poppies!. Not so many poppies, that's OK since Arlington Garden has many wonderful views to paint. There's a shed on the north side and a work/potting area. I tried a watercolor of it on my first paint-out there three years ago, Saturday Paint-Out. Time to try it again since I thought it looked very colorful with the bougainvillea and I liked the light on the tree in the background. A nice spring day for painting.
