San Francisco Lines & Blossoms

Started a new project this week. Missing San Francisco lately, a second home of sorts, so pulled out some of the photos from one of the summer trips for inspiration. This one is going to be a composition about contrasts, not just in values on the houses from an intensely bright summer sun, but also between the crisp, clean orderly lines of the buildings as the backdrop for a cherry blossom in full bloom explosion. Hoping to work in some fabulous thick paint for the tree, but we’ll see how that goes. Gonna need some help from my painting teacher before this one is done.
