"Myrtle Edwards Park - Seattle"

5" x 5" Acrylic on gessobord

Reference photo for the above painting

As you can see, I changed things a bit in the painting rather than going totally by the reference photo.    I took this photo 10 years ago during a short stay in Seattle.   In the future I hope to do a larger painting of this scene and I may paint the water a pinker hue then.   This particular park has many flowers, particularly roses.   It is right near downtown and is popular for joggers as well. Near there is a park with many outdoor sculptures.   Seattle has some beautiful surrounding scenery and mountains, but I prefer Hawaii.
