Descanso Mulberry Pond

Another great late morning spent sketching at Descanso. The late spring flowers are thriving, the mini train was running, the sun was bright, and we got visited by a very confident goose! We got to watch the grounds keepers working to clear out the area around the Mulberry Pond, and were visited by a number of groups of school children on field trips and families out and about. So very cute, alert and curious.

I’ve found all my little travel paint sets and brushes, but my pencil sketches were working out best. I keep saying it, and I’ll say it again here: Someday, I’d really like to take a painting class to learn to use watercolors and acrylics and have the excuse to actually spend dedicated time working on it...
