A location for one of the paint-out groups in August was at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. It's such a lovely place for plein air artists that I've done four previous blog posts of pieces painted there. It was a very warm day so I didn't venture far from the entrance area and the cafe where we meet to look at each other's work. As soon as I started walking in search of a view to paint I noticed some men working on re-roofing the gift shop building. From one of the walkways, I had a great view and they were so colorful that I had to try a painting. I used gouache because of their bright vests which really caught my eye. I really enjoy these not-so-romantic subjects.
