Today the PALS Plein Air Group that I belong to took a trip to Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton which is about an hour and 10 minutes east of me. It is part of the Peconic Land Trust which is accumulating land out there to be preserved as gardens and open land. The garden is really pretty with a water lily pond, some English gardens, a rose arbor, etc. I began the day (which was very hot) in the shade from a building near the lily pond. This is 8 x 10 and is not my direct watercolor painting.
I had a little time before we were leaving so I did a quick direct watercolor of part of the garden. This was done in about 15 minutes and is 5 x 7.
