Chinese Garden - Peace Boat Pavilion

I went to the Chinese garden again this week, as I was shopping in the city again. The ornate Chinese architecture is a challenge. I sat in the small pavilion I drew last week (the Lenient Jade Pavilion) and drew the Peace Boat Pavilion. There was a stiff breeze (autumn is here) and I had to paint the water at home rather than have my page whipping about & my painting rag slapping across the wet paint. Not working on watercolour paper (Como paper- very heavy cartridge - maybe 280gsm), so reasonably happy with the reflections.
