This is a typical scene of late for plein air painters in San Diego:  marine layer, marine layer, marine layer. Usually this time of year the sun is out early in the day and paintings full of sunshine and shadows abound.  But this year it's obviously different, and that's okay because I'm still doing what I love to do.  Though most plein air painters I know prefer the sunshine, I can take it either way. Though I'm slow painter in general I can be a little more patient on overcast days because there are no shadows to chase and bright sun glaring upon me.  This particular scene is at the bottom of Hawthorne near India Street.  Looking forward to more grey paintings in the near future.
