In February the Saturday paint-out group returned to Vista Hermosa Park near downtown. It was my third time painting there. On our first visit the weather was threatening and the distant Los Angeles skyline had lovely, soft, cloudy edges. I posted that watercolor in Vista Hermosa Park, which was also my first try at a cityscape. Our next visit was about a year later on a bright sunny day. I tried a warmer toned watercolor, Downtown Views! Of course Vista Hermosa means Beautiful View in Spanish and the hilly park offers magnificent views of the city. This park is always an exciting place to visit since the views are so wonderful, as well as challenging to paint.
