Saturday in The Park with the Mid Valley Art League

I participated in the annual Saturday in the Park with the Masters event a few weeks ago. At the top is a sketch of the antique paint box I used, and directly above is my set up for the day.

This is my first subject, the auditorium and the administration building. I did a quick study sketch in my Aquabee sketchbook to block out the composition and establish the values.

Here is the final version, done on 14" x 20" Fabriano cold press watercolor paper. I used pencil and watercolor, then came back with water soluble pen and white gouache to finish it up and give it some texture.

Here is the second painting of the day: a view looking south under the trees.
