Two versions of the same branch of lemons, both versions completed alla prima (au premier coup). It almost looks like a different artist did each of them, but I am doing some experimentation with paint application.
I have been wanting to capture the city fog in a painting. Sometimes the fog comes in thick and really low, like ocean foam on a beach. Its really beautiful and special. I captured it here:
The 500 Club is another San Francisco classic bar both on the inside and the outside. (its not open at 6 am anymore)
I wanted to go back to what I painted for a long time- still lifes. Nothing fancy, just a quick afternoon study of a bowl of fruits.
