Lily Pond at Tregaron

Tregaron is a public garden I learned about just a week ago -- in the shaded woods that lead to Rock Creek Park, there's a lily pond and paths that wind around and down to the "grand staircase" that leads to the creek.  Klingle Road, which runs along the way, used to be a cut-through in the park.  Not long after I moved to DC, the road was blocked/washed out in a storm and it was never reopened.   I've been eager to paint there (if you can be eager after only a week) and today took the opportunity.
The lilies in the foreground were silhouetted and the lilies beyond variously in light and dark as the shadows shifted across the pond.  I have got to do this again!
