Grandview Point

A few weeks ago the paint-out group had Angel's Point in Elysian Park on the schedule.  Elysian Park covers some hills with wonderful views overlooking much of Los Angeles.  I tried painting there a few years ago but never found Angel's Point what with the maze of windy roads and smaller hills.  Unfortunately on this visit the gate to Angel's Point Rd. was closed.  No problem.  We found Grandview Point which has terrific views of downtown L.A. to the south, and the foothills to the north.  An ariel tramway was proposed to Grandview Point a few years ago.  I decided to paint a watercolor of the vista I could see through the trees and bushes from the hilltop.  Great views!
