These sketches were done at Malibu Creek State Park on the same day in the order shown. You can see how the light changed from overcast to sunny as the day progressed. It was a beautiful day with a breeze. Sitting under an oak tree in the shade and enjoying the view was really relaxing.
I went with my son Craig who was on break between semesters at Art Center College of Design. The spot we chose was opposite the old MASH set across Malibu Creek. We saw many families, hikers and equestrians coming down the road as we sat and painted.
