I've started going landscape painting on the weekends with a group of like-minded, if somewhat more practiced, individuals...what you see here is my second attempt at the genre, the first one being, shall we say, less than exemplary. Apparently, I need to practice. A lot. But I find the same joy in this as I do in figure drawing, with the advantage here being that I can be outside... The painting and prep drawings are of a water tower in El Segundo's Hilltop Park.
