"Stream At Eaton"6" x 6"
Eaton canyon is close to where I grew up in Pasadena. It's at the bottom of the San Gabriel mountains and was a favorite place to hang out as a kid. I go there now to hike around snapping reference photos and enjoying the colors of the sky when it's close to sunset. Many painters head to Eaton canyon because it is so accesible. This year we had some good rains so the stream down the canyon was going pretty good. I was there just after one of the rains and got some great shots of the stream and surroundings. This little study was painted from one of those shots.
