Painted on location in Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco, this is a popular place for joggers, dog-walkers and equestrians. On this spring evening, though, everyone seems to have departed as the sun sets on the far side on the arroyo. These (painting) situations with lots of color variations within a close value range are a favorite of mine.
