LOS ANGELES RIVER #3
Los Angeles River Series
Watercolor and charcoal pencil on hot press paper
18" x 30" framed
I started this work as a series of watercolors depicting the “modern landscape” of the Los Angeles River. I was originally drawn to the paradox of the landscape. Once a beautiful part of nature, the river now functions as a storage area for massive shipping containers, which are evocative and impressive in their own right, but replace the former beauty of the natural river.
