Miller Knox Park, Richmond, CA.

Sunday 30th August 2009

Small oil sketches from a session yesterday painting with the North Bay Plein Air Group in this lovely park near Point Richmond, in the east bay. Lots of space, activity on the water and wind. Painting No.1 began when the light was murky and overcast. Painting No. 2 happened later on in the day, when the clouds had burnt off, the wind had dropped and the temperature rose considerably.

  1. Really nice paintings Fran, I wish I got to see you paint them in person. Great overcast clouds in the first painting. Love the sunny landscape in the second painting.

  2. I like the foggy atmospheric tone to the crane painting. The small size worked out better in the wind, eh?

    It was nice of the fog to scamper away so you could capture the dreamlike image of the City beyond the crest of that warm hillside.
