Rosedale is a central west neighborhood in Austin. I often take my son to play at Ramsey Park, which is just a few blocks from this house on Rosedale Ave. and 41st St.
I sat on the lawn across the street to sketch and paint this. The man living across the street, as well as a woman down the street seemed pleased that I was sketching there. This house had a nice little garden with Poinciana and Plumbago growing in front.
I love the new sketchbook I am using. The paper is thicker than in my other sketchbook and handles watercolor much better. It is a Maruman FO S970 with a Renoir portrait on the cover.
