Another open air painting in Balboa Park- the Alcazar Garden. I really like this spot to paint- I guess it’s probably described as a formal Italian-style garden but with a mix of Moorish elements added as well. Nice place.
The Alcazar Garden is one of my favorite, quiet spots in Balboa Park. It’s a formal garden with clipped hedges in patterns around flowerbeds, overhung with palm trees and surrounded by archways. This is my second painting from the OPA paint out a couple of Saturdays ago.
A couple of weeks ago we joined members of the Oil Painters of America to paint in Balboa Park. I chose the Alcazar Garden, so I could paint the California Tower (part of the Museum of Man). Also I like standing in the shade.
We took pictures of some of the other painters, though they have disappeared from the camera! Mysterious.
