I've painted at Pasadena's Central Park quite a few times with the various plein air groups. But I haven't painted the park before. The impressive and memorable view to paint is actually north across the street...the landmark Castle Green Hotel. I've tried painting the hotel on four previous paint-outs, my most recent almost two years ago, The Green Hotel. On my previous paint-out at the park I did a gouache piece of an 1880s building across the street, Central Park. This time I decided to try a watercolor of the large park through the dark trees. The light on the ground contrasted so beautifully with the dark evergreens. There is a lawn bowling court at the other end of the park that I'd like to try sometime.
