SAN GABRIEL RIVER
Oil on CanvasThis is a view of the San Gabriel River, about 3 miles east of downtown. I decided to paint the scene in oil and it turned out pretty good. Mixing my own greens and earth colors, the only colors on my palette were Bright Red, Cad Yellow Lemon, Ultramarine Blue, Naples Yellow and Soft Mixing White. I'm still struggling with brush-handling but my paint mixing and values are getting better with the limited palette, I think.
