Descanso Garden

A flowering cherry tree at Descanso Garden in La Canada Flintridge. This place is beautiful in February. Watercolor on Strathmore Plate Bristol. 30x22". I love this paper because the watercolor just sits on top of the surface.


  1. The cherry tree looks ecstatic. Lovely watercolor, Dee. I'd love to be able to see it in person.

  2. You've made this watercolor look effortless...... bravo! Beautiful. I too wish I could see it.

  3. Absolutely beautiful, Dee. I love your weather journals, but this is sublime...

  4. Thank you all for the nice comments. I really appreciate them!

  5. Now that's a painting! What a beauty. It has such depth that it resembles an oil painting. I love the fluid lines of the branches and the grasses. What a treat to see and very inspiring!

  6. wow indeed. that is really beautiful. especially glad you noted the size. Just lovely!!Did you paint plein aire?
