Beauty And Age - Descanso Gardens (work in progress)

Work in progress
"Beauty And Age"
16" x 20" on canvas

I laid this out very quickly a few minutes ago in acrylics.  My intention is to finish it in oils.   This is a scene at Descanso Gardens a few years ago. These gardens are in a suburb of Los Angeles, California.  I have always meant to paint it, and it feels good to finally begin work on it and also to do a larger canvas for a change.   I can see I need to work on the angle of the bench; like I said, this is a very rough quick lay-in of color and shapes.   Below is my reference photograph.

I believe that twisting vine is a wisteria plant not yet in bloom.   Please correct me if I am wrong.  

Now back to the easel !
