My first plein air painting for 2018 turned out to be of the famous Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena. It's a Southern California landmark, constructed in 1913. It's also a favorite subject for painters. I've painted the bridge once before, over two years ago, The Bridge. Today the group met at La Casita Del Arroyo which is on a bluff on the east side of the Arroyo Seco. I've painted the arroyo stone Casita several times before. There are also nice views of the bridge so I decided to give it another try. I liked the fall colors of some of the arroyo trees. So many branches and leaves I could keep adding but time to stop I think.
