Pacific Pastels

This is a view I’ve wanted to paint for a while and this afternoon got a chance to do a small painting of it; Pacific Ave at Divisidero in SF, looking east towards downtown and the East Bay hills. I got to stand in the street, taking the parking place of a car, which gave me a view that included Mt Diablo (peeking out on the left) and the TransAmerica Pyramid. I love the pastel colors of San Francisco and had fun painting them on this clear, warm day, until, of course,  the cool ocean breezes started to blow in.
