Plein Air Painting at Fort Baker
It started off a beautiful day with sun and shadows but it quickly got very cold. I did not bring any sweaters and was eventually shivering. I wanted to paint the house as a vertical projected from below. As seen in the photo it was on a hill. My painting got rushed so I eliminated all of the windows on the porch and made the structure taller. This was to give the painting a feeling of height. The lines in the green background were also intended to create height. Will have to visit again and be prepared for weather changes.
