San Fernando Blvd, Glendale

I painted from my car because I found a perfect view when I parked. There was an arch formed by the trees on both side of the street. It was an imaginative gate leading towards a parallel world. At least that was my inspiration. I was not sure I was able to express that.....Maybe next time.

LA River

It was around 6pm. I like to paint during magic hour, but I painted the earlier today. You can tell the location of the sun from the cast shadow on the white building. LA River was right behind the bump and the fence in the front.

Gouache and Pastel

Applying Pastel on the painting is another level of excitement. Those bright colors demand attention and statement. It opens the door to the cartoon world. I think I need more colors.

Head Study

I like going to Saturday Night Painting Workshop at ACCD because I feel like I went back to student. I do what I used to do but with more knowledge and different POV. Now I think more about artistic choice I can make. Thanks to Charles Hu, the workshop has been a fun and inspiring place.
