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.
