Creating the Painting "Mission Hills Tall Palms"

This painting was a small study, inspired by a quintessential Southern California bungalow I saw beneath some very tall palm trees in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego, California, United States. I was interested in particular in the way the light plays on the building, and the feeling created by the sky, light and palms.

(Note: the colors in the paintings can vary from shot to shot because of lighting and white balance variations with the camera.)
