Prince Street (Berkeley - California) - Watercolour

I painted this watercolour last week, on location, in Berkeley (California). The weather was ideal, with a bright blue sky and moderate heat.

Berkeley is a very nice town, with wooden houses full of character. There are so many plants, flowers and trees that the place looks like a town planted in a garden. The climate means that you can enjoy flowers all year round. I saw many trees heavy with lemons, a sigth uncommon in England.

To paint, I just sat opposite the house, on the sidewalk. After one hour and half, I wished I had a cushion or a seat. Apart from that, it was a pleasant painting session.
