I did a rough draft painting en plein air last week at the Los Angeles Union Station. I’ve been working on converting the watercolor-like painting to a more abstract one in my cloisonnist style.
Last weekend I did a painting en plein air at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.
Union Station and my painting – both under construction.
I had some time to spend on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks this weekend, so I packed my paints in my car. I was lucky enough to get a good parking spot on the street and quickly painted the Boulevard from the back of the HHR, with my easel on the street. After 45 minutes or so I had a rough painting:
I was invited through the Burbank Art Association and the Burbank Town Mall to the Mall Terrace last Friday to sell art while they had live music and dancing. Here I am painting the view.
I Painted this en Plein Air today at the Glendale Cruise Night car show.
Thanks to the Glendale Art Association for inviting me to paint at their booth!
Here I am, while the sun was slipping away and taking all the yellow light with it.
Today I painted at a small memorial at the Olive Recreation Center in Burbank, California. There is a pillar and a bench surrounded by trees and roses. This ended up more loose and impressionistic because I was working fast, mostly because it was a hot day and my acrylics were drying! I particularly wanted to work on color temperature today and I think it turned out OK.
This is the painting I did live at the Burbank Cultural Arts Commission booth at the fair. It was a busy day – after I did most of the painting at noon, I returned to my car and took my paintings to the Burbank Art Association ‘booth’ at the mall to sell art. I sold three pieces this weekend. Thank you to all who gave me the opportunity to be there!
The next painting I did at Zuma Beach in California I used more saturated colors. It’s less realistic because it was foggy and grey out there, but I was having fun.
Painted today at Zuma Beach, California with the Weekend Warrior Painters. The fog was thick this morning and everything was grey. The first painting I did is more of a mono-color painting because it really is only grey and yellow.
