The Los Angeles River

I've been painting down by the Los Angeles River lately, admiring the beautiful light and color. It's a cool place - but bring an umbrella, because I don't mean cool literally. These are a few of the sketches done on location. 

UPDATE: I recently had the opportunity to paint with Silvina Day; she just posted some very nice things about me on her blog, so go visit her and leave some good comments!
