30th SketchCrawl, SF

Today's 30th SketchCrawl held at Nihonmachi, also known as Japan Town in San Francisco. I could not have asked for a better day to sketch and catch up with friends.

Lloyd Lake, Golden Gate Park

Today's painting of Lloyd Lake in Golden Gate Park just off JFK Drive. I have driven by this lake many times and it never really peaked my interest because of the small manmade stream and a ionic columns structure. It seems to be a popular place for couples to take a snap shot. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm Winter day in the park. I hope there will be a few more days like this over the winter. What more could a plein air painter ask for.

Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park

First plein air painting of 2011 at Spreckels Lake in Golden Gate. Perhaps not my favorite lake to paint in Golden Gate Park due to it's obvious man-made construction. You will typically see model yachts sailing and people jogging on the pathways. There are several benches around the lake so I think this would be a good place to sit and sketch.
