I like dining at restaurants that have out door seating. That being said, living in the high desert there is only a small window of opportunity to dine outside. So when ever we travel down below, we try to go to a restaurant that does have out door seating weather permitting. While we were in Valencia, we had lunch at the California Pizza Kitchen on the patio. We had a view of the small pond that the ducks frequent and this is one of the ducks that waddled by.
On this painting I used gouache on toned paper.
