Oil Study - San Gabriel River

Back home from our 2-weeks down on the coast. On the way back, we stopped for a couple of days in Georgetown; John played golf with his son and I went down on the river and painted all afternoon.
Oil on Canvas
This 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.
