The new L.A. River paint-out group had Bette Davis Park on the schedule for last Tuesday. I've been by the park many times but never saw the river from there. After phoning our organizer to find the group, it turned out to be a nice area for painting...just up an embankment and there was the river. We had a small group of painters which is always nice. There were some busy plovers wading in the sandy parts of the river but I couldn't get a good photo. This was the second time I've painted with the group. Rattlesnake Park was my first experience and I posted that gouache piece in Rattlesnake Park. It's an exciting environment, combining nature with urban, and I'm looking forward to the next outing!
