Civic Center Park Fountain

Here is a portion of the fountain located in Civic Center Park, Denver, CO. This used to be one of the worst areas of the park, but lately it has been well-cared for and the fountain is clean and cheerful. This was a quick watercolor sketch, and I didn't stay in the area for long. Shade is at a premium in this sunny hot corner of the park.

City Park Entrance Fountain

This grand fountain is placed at the entrance to City Park off of 17th Avenue. It is a popular, lovely sight all summer long. A real beauty! This watercolor sketch was one of the first fountains I worked on this summer past.

Denver Plein Air Arts Festival

It was great fun to paint downtown at the week-long Denver Plein Air Arts Festival. About 150 artists participated. This is my third year painting in the festival. Although I painted in oils the previous years, I decided to paint in the watercolors this year since I've been painting out in WC all summer long.
