I had a great time painting in the Tidal Basin yesterday. The fall weather was perfect with temps in the low 60’s. The paintings I created were small 9 x 12’s
The crowds were low compared to spring during the blossoms but for me the color was just as nice. It was easy to drive in and park near the Ohio Street Bridge and walk a few hundred yards to my first painting location.
It is a little past peak at the basin but the trees at the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting pool are still green. The mall was mixed with some trees completely denuded of leaves and some just turning.
