San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin
Last week's paintsite was in Japantown at the Buddhist Church on North 5th St. We had a huge rain storm two days previous, so I dressed for cool weather - was surprised by hot tropical weather! We were sat out on the sidewalk painting in full sun, so eventually it got way too hot to do anything. I didn't even do a drawing for the second sketch, just launched in quickly with the paints. Over lunch, some adorable children came across from the Kindergarten to look at our paintings. I'm not sure they were that impressed!
