Here’s a plein air sketch of the Chinese Peace Pavilion on “Strawbery Hill“, Stow Lake, Golden Gate Park.  The trick with this painting was to paint a monolithic structure. I kept it off-center, with the walkway on the left leading you in.  The trees surrounding where also kept point in towards the center of interest, and varied in color to make things interesting.  Looks like we’re going to enjoy good weather this weekend, so looking forward to painting plein air!  I have some catching up to do after a long, wet winter.
