It was a cloudy and dreary day when one of the paint-out groups met at the Los Angeles River. It was my fourth time painting there. I blogged about my first two paintings at the river in L.A. River. I've also painted from another location which I wrote about in Observatory View.
Since I've painted at the location before I had in mind to cross the footbridge and find a view from the west side of the river. I crossed the bridge but didn't find a view that appealed. So I settled on the still-fall foliage and some pretty white ducks that were spending the morning near us for my watercolor. I do like to include urban scenery like the huge transmission towers too. I only had to visit the car once to use the heater to dry my first wash...very handy. Just blocks from busy city streets, it's such a beautiful and peaceful setting to visit with a lot of wildlife activity.
