Pastels of Golden Gate Park

Here are two gorgeous pastel drawings of Golden Gate Park, by San Francisco artist Diane Olivier, who is also a legendary drawing teacher at San Francisco City College.  Two different days, very different light in the park!  Both drawings were done in the Botanical Garden, near the north gate.  To see more beautiful drawings by this artist, visit her web page:  http://www.dianeolivier.com
