Downtown Views!

The Saturday paint-out group was back at Vista Hermosa Park a few weeks ago.  It's hilly and located on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles so of course there are great views of the many tall buildings.  The only other time I was there was for our previous paint-out last winter.  I posted that watercolor in Vista Hermosa Park.  That morning paint-out was between rain storms for us painters.  This year, our winter has been lacking the normal rainfall and we had a beautiful, sunny day for painting.  

The neighborhood surrounding the park is old with homes that have a lot of character.  But I felt like trying another watercolor of the growing number of tall downtown buildings.  Construction is underway on a new skyscraper which will be the tallest building on the West Coast.  Future downtown views from the park will have a new landmark.
