10"x8" oil on canvas
Well, this is the result of a plein air painting day in downtown Pleasanton, CA. I helped introduce my new friend and fellow blogger, Sheila Tajima (check out her wonderful blog by clicking on her name), to the plein air scene. She watched as I painted this scene and with her coaxing got me to reluctantly post my painting ;) I'm somewhat happy with it, but I have a long way to go to get where I'd love to be proficiency-wise. And for those of you who aren't sure what plein air painting is, it is when an artist sets up his easel outside to paint and tries capture a moment within a short amount of time before the light changes too much.
