Spring at EL Monte County Park

Gouache sketch of mountains above El Monte Park in San DIego area

Spring at El Monte Park

I drove 40-minutes into the hills to El Monte County Park and painted the granite peaks above the valley floor. Although the spring shine gave a greenish cast to the area, the dominant feature was the rain runoff patterns down the mountainside. I had some trouble capturing it and finally used lines with a change in color to show it.

This is a 22 X 13-inch gouache painting.
