Some of the old homes are Victorian and well-kept. The one that turned out to be in my view of the downtown buildings that I wanted to paint was very run down, deserted, and boarded up. I don't usually get into many details while plein air painting anyway so it was okay with me. I had time to also try a smaller gouache piece from my painting spot in a parkway, under a tree. There was a cat watching from a window in the house in back of me for most of the morning. Many cars are always parked along the streets in this neighborhood and I really should try adding some to my paintings. There are many more views to paint in Angelino Heights and I'm looking forward to more visits.
