Painting in Crockett, CA

What a wonderful week of painting. Spent the week in Crockett, CA painting street and water scenes and meeting some very nice people. The annual paintout in Crockett is hosted by the Epperson Gallery and about 60 artists participated.
This is a scene right above the C&H sugar factory. I was kept company by a worker who wandered by and had plenty of questions about painting. The scene is looking west and the ever present Carquinez bridge is seen. I played it down in value so it would not overpower. The sun was bright and the cast shadows very strong. That is actually the old Crockett train station at the bottom of the hill but the trains no longer stop for passengers.
