I am gearing up for the upcoming Carmel Art Festival and have been getting out of the studio to paint plein air on location. The Hyperion Bridge is an amazing structure, beautiful and impressive. I painted here last year and posted a plein air painting from that day. If you want to learn more about this landmark I found a great blog at Big Orange Landmark.
The LA River is becoming more natural and wild every year. There was a large flock of Canadian geese trumpeting while I painted. One of the local residents told me he was visiting the geese every day and it sure looked as if he had struck up a friendship with the group because several came out of the water to say hello to him.
The morning was hazy and windy so I knew that my painting would have a lot of atmosphere with the background hills fading into the distance. My effort was successful with a lovely view of the east arches going over the Los Angeles River. Topics: Plein Air Painting
