Descanso Gardens Plein Air Painting

Last weekend I painted with the Weekend Warriors in Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, CA. Did the heat scare everyone away or were we spread out all over? I only saw a few others painting. I was very ambitious because I took a 16″ x 20″ canvas to paint on and I’d never painted that large since using Cloisonnist techniques. I think it turned out good.

Stoney Point Park Plein Air

I met the Weekend Warrior Painters at Stoney Point Park in Chatsworth, CA. It was very hot that morning but I preservered and found a spot to paint under an oak tree. Looking south I could see the tall sandstone rocks and a dusty trail.

Still going through my abstract impressionistic Cloisonnist art phase.

St. Leon Armenian Church Finished Painting

I made a lot of finishing touches on my painting from the weekend. I tidied up the right side, added a wash to the left side, and finished the glass blocks towards the bottom. A big change was the alcove with the cross over it in the center. In the original, I didn’t have enough room for the cross, so I repainted the whole section. I thought halfway through that I ruined it, but it came out fine, I think.

St. Leon Church in Burbank, California, in the Cloisonnist style I’m practicing.
