Oxnard Beach Plein Air Painting

Last weekend I was at Oxnard Beach and brought along my painting gear. The best view was down where the surf was coming in, so I set up the easel and painted quickly as the waves licked my feet. I like how the wave frames the photo of the painting.

St. Leon Armenian Church

Evening Plein air painting with the Weekend Warrior Painters at St. Leon Armenian Church in Burbank, CA. Thank you to the pastor for letting our group paint until 8PM. I am still working on my Cloisonnism painting technique, I have some final details to do but as it is here it’s mostly finished. I will post the final painting.

Fruit Trees Number Three

This is the third painting of this same subject. The first draft of this one didn’t excite me. I got out the black gesso and palette knifes and it turned a little abstract and high saturation.

Plein Air Vista Hermosa Natural Park

Today I painted with the Weekend Warrior Painters at their 100th Painting Session at Vista Hermosa Natural Park in Los Angeles. The park is hidden north of downtown Los Angeles with great views of the city. It was overcast today but warm.
