Description of California Street
This city view is from the vantage point of looking up California Street from downtown San Francisco.
The painting was done with a palette knife in hues of orange, blue, yellow, and red blended together in thick layers of paint.
There are many beautiful textures and subtle colors in this work.
I was interested in the positive shapes of the buildings against the negative space of the sky,
It was a challenge to find the best balance of color and value as any one change in color to one shape would affect all the others.
I was exploring balance and harmony within color, shape and form.
