Oil/linen panel
Plein air

This was painted underneath a freeway bridge on a rainy San Diego morning.  What caught my eye about this scene was the unique perspective of a high horizon line (this horizon line is above the viewers eye level) so you the view are looking up at the subject.  I was standing on a downhill incline underneath the bridge.  I love paintings that have a high or low horizon lines and it's also a chellenge as well to execute with composition.  On grey days colors to me are more saturated, more chromatic.  The yellows and oranges were so bold in this kind of light.  Looking forward to more rainy day paintings!
