Plein Air Painting Problems
When it comes to painting on San Francisco Bay, you have to be fast. I was wandering among the Sausalito houseboats looking for something to paint. There was alot of noise and attention given to this crane, so decided to paint it. I took the picture, found my car and gear and returned to sketch. My crane was suddenly on its way out to sea. Pushed by a small outboard motor on a boat, it completely disappeared around the corner. I finished a sketch and painted my version of it on a vertical format.
