The Los Angeles area seems to be having summer weather in February. But last month, it was cold and winter-y...for Southern California. Our paint-out at the 1908 Arts and Crafts masterpiece Gamble House in Pasadena was on a very dreary day.
Overcast day or not, it's always a treat to be at the Greene and Greene designed Gamble House. It has a special mood and character. On my previous paint-out there I tried a gouache piece of the distinctive lantern on the rear patio, The Gamble House Lantern. With its many spectacular porches and dark stain, I find the house difficult to paint in watercolor. I had in mind to keep it simple, more of a silhouette, and try another watercolor. I'll be painting there again soon and looking forward to seeing what view I can find!
