I went out to Elysian Park today with a couple other painters, Jose and Laurie, and fell in love with all the views! I brought this 18 by 24 canvas and had at this one. I kept the painting brushy but the paint was very watery with lots of gamsol and liquin. I used the color shapes to feel out the composition and then started drawing lines to refine things. when I got back to the studio, I fixed the lines down with more diluted liquin and a mouth atomizer.
