Riverside paint- out

I did these on the first day of the Riverside paint- out. While everyone was painting the lovely court yards and churches on Mission Inn avenue, I went off on the side streets and painted a view of a pawn shop parking lot and the back of the Riverside museum. I placed second in the contest . I'll post the paiting when I get it back.

My biggest Plein air yet! 9 x12 not very big, but I usually do 8 x 10. This is a view in Sierra Madre looking down a street called Grandview. You can't see it, but my house is behind the trees in the top far left. I wanted to see if I could do a Ken Auster type painting. At sunset, light was a dull cloudy warm and then gone after 20 minutes. Ordinarily the sun would be right in my eyes from this view.

Monrovia Morning

6x8 Plein air study and 16x20 studio painting referring to the study and a photo.

The study is a little rushed as a cop came by and asked me to move. I talked him into letting me stay a little longer to finish, but my concentration was broken. Notice the perspective off on the big tanks. I didn't see that until I got home. When I did the studio I tried to push the cool morning mood. I think the plien air study is better despite all the work on the big one.

LA River

They should leave the LA river as it is. I don't see the need for using taxes to build parks that chase the animals away that are reclaiming it already. Let nature take it back, not man. Here is a painting down in the river just below the Levitz one from my last post.
Painting Diary

Love it at Levitz
The parking lot that is. 8x10 oil late. Sun when away in 15 minutes and I finished in the dark in about an hour. It was my second painting of the day this time alone after painting in the morning with my new painting buddys J. Mc C. and Robert Van Gough. Robert is now my first student and is coming along well. We painted at the LA River in the morning I'll post that next.
