Griffith Observatory Landscape

I'm back in New York and have been for the last two weeks. I had to go back to work the day after I returned so I could feed myself and pay my rent. That has occupied my time recently. I was able to get some painting in today and I'll post that when I'm done. I'll also be posting the last entry in my series of the painting I was doing in Adrian's class in the next few days. For that one I just need to take a high quality photo. Anyways, here is something I did in my free time towards the end of my stay in Los Angeles:

I painted this landscape for the couple that was renting us a room. They were super accommodating of my painting and I thought they might like this. It's of the Observatory at Griffith Park back in Los Angeles. I hadn't been doing many landscapes in NYC... It's pretty hard to find outdoor painting spots in New York that aren't Central Park or Prospect Park. Both parks are great but they are full of people and I spend more time talking than painting. It's easier to find less crowded places in Los Angeles and you can range out farther using a car. One of the few pluses for a car in LA! As far as this painting goes this one came out pretty good considering I've been neglecting my landscape painting. The only problem was having to take the photo with my phone since the real camera and computer had to gone back to NYC with my girlfriend. I have another landscape I'll be posting soon.
