the view from Yamashiro's

Last night there was a fancy farmer's market at Yamashiro's in the Hollywood Hills. I hadn't been there in ages but fell in love all over again! That view is incredible! You need a 20 foot long canvas because it is 180 degrees from Griffith Park Observatory to the ocean. because of the event I got to paint in a place that would otherwise be off limits which is the most fun part about these 'live' painting gigs. I had an awkward canvas for such a panoramic scene, but here's a sliver of it over Hollywood towards Century City in the distance. This is a 24 by 30 that I blocked in and then scraped off. It really feels Bonnard-y, I kinda like it!
