A weekend painter contemplates Stevens Creek Reservoir
With Rajit cruelly called to duty by his company, on a late Spring Saturday no less, Dick took over and led another successful Weekend Paintout.

Please note that the next Weekend Paintout is scheduled for Saturday, July 20th, at the Rosicrucian Museum in San Jose --- check the Society website and July newsletter for additional details.
Dick lead us painters and it was enjoyable with a good turn out and especially because I had my son come along and paint with me. The water was low in the reservoir and the uniform yet dense vegetation made painting the view extremely challenging. Just a bunch of trees I thought, but adding drama when you have only hues of greens to play with is not for the weak hearted. We all persisted unfazed of course. I toiled over my watercolor block for an hour and when that started looking gruesome, I gave it another shot in my book in 15 minutes. That's the painting posted here. Goes to prove, less is more. -Uma Kelkar
