On November 17, my friend Hyeg and I went up to PV to paint. It was a crisp fall day, but there was a surprising number of people who had ventured out into the sunshine. The park we went to overlooks the ocean. The vista is amazing, with views from the tip of Malibu to the Hollywood sign to downtown L.A. and all the way over to Redondo Beach. It is the perfect place for plein air.
When scouting for a good vantage point, we decided to stay close to the parking lot (a logistical decision more than anything). Even so, we had some great views of the cliffs and city.
We picked a precarious spot; Hyeg had only two feet of cliff before a rather sudden drop. I, on the other hand, was safe and in the perfect position to watch Hyeg fall if he slipped. Needless to say, he kept very close to his easel.
