Here's an oldie....back in September I painted with another watercolor artist during a Park(ing) Day event held in downtown Sausalito.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day, global event where artists, activists, and citizens independently but simultaneously temporarily transform metered parking spots into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public parks.
Here we have 3 additional tables and 18 chairs spilling into what usually is a 15 minute parking zone.
Anyone can participate in PARK(ing) Day, though it is strictly a non-commercial project, intended to promote creativity, civic engagement, critical thinking, unscripted social interactions, generosity and play.

I wish we could have been out here all day, but Park(ing) day was only approved for a max of 2-hours. Mostly spent my time meeting and chatting with passerby's. I'd have to say I spend just under an hour blocking in shapes and colors.
Not very happy with the results I decided to try and save the painting by reworking it at home whenever the opportunity arose. It's one of those things where I might have been better off starting from scratch again. But I'll be sure to scan the updated painting and share in the next post.
