The Saturday paint-out group had a beautiful, sunny day for our paint-out in Hollenbeck Park. It was almost exactly a year ago that we painted there, my first time, and it was a dreary day with sprinkles just holding off. I posted that watercolor in Hollenbeck Park. It's an old park near downtown Los Angeles and very busy on Saturday. I don't remember the resident flock of pigeons being so large last year. Some visitors were feeding them and they came up to us painters to see if we had some pigeon food. Besides pigeons, since there is a lovely, long lake of course there are lots of ducks and even cormorants. I decided to try a gouache piece this time. I added just a few of the many birds.
