different time and weather

Sunset(7pm). This is FWY 2 near Harvey Dr Exit on FWY 134. I really like the scale of it. The cars are as long as the bottom length of the V structure, so this fwy bridge is pretty big. I should have painted the cars in... The sunset hit the dirt and illuminated the under side of the bridge in golden tone, which was constantly changing.
Cloudy day(9am) This tree(pine?) was also huge, but vertically. I was getting my tires replaced, so I painted meanwhile. It was interesting to paint in the morning. I will try to do that more often. Many colors were soft with bluish tone overall. It was also another hi-key painting. North Hollywood looks very peaceful in this painting.

daily paintings

This is to see color relationship of cel-vinyl paints. Red, Purple, and Green are pretty dark.
Hi-key Pastel tone.
I wanted to paint the glowing saturated green in shadow, so I muted the light. I should have kept the rest of the shadow elements lighter...

along LA river

I don't have much to talk about it... I was trying to have warm and cool balance in the paintng. I was also trying a different way to paint which I apply more bold colors and make them all harmonize.
