Earth Tone Palette

To change it up a bit I used and earth tone palette of burnt sienna, yellow ochre, black and white.  I was in the mood to simplify my palette and try something different.  With simplifying the palette the painting is more unified and harmonious.  This view is seen while driving west on I-8.  I managed to find this spot on a frontage road.  The building, the Serra Junipera Museum is usually painted from the side, in Presidio Park.  I also like this view off the side of the road.  It's a 9x12 plein air painted on a linen panel.
