Brookside Park

It's been several months since I painted this plein air watercolor at Brookside Park in Pasadena.  It was soon after the workshop I took given by Chien Chung Wei.  I was trying to apply some methods and tips I learned in the workshop.  One thing is the rough paper that Chien uses.  Lately I've only been using the smoother cold press paper.  I tried rough again on this piece.  I could see part of the busy Aquatic Center over the old wisteria-covered pergola,  It was a nice day with changing shadows, as they always do.  I seemed to be sitting in an area with many ground squirrels that weren't happy I was there.
