Sun goes down pretty fast these days...

It is Magnolia Blvd in Burbank. I was initially gonna paint the power plant, which is right next to it, but I thought this view had more potential. It is a bridge going over FWY5. I like how many elements were presented in front of me. The clouds were casting shadows on the mountain. This is a sunset view of LA River. The river is reflecting a sky above, which was still bright.

LA River near Quixote

I took a bicycle trip along LA River and did this one right before sunset. I won't recommend to paint there just because of the emission gas from FWY 5. I was there for 4,5 hours so I felt dizzy and suffocating at the end. I am fine now.

These are the paintings done at the workshop. It was pretty nice. There will be another one...Hum....It's very tempting.
