"Sundown, Balboa Park", 16x20

Balboa Park is an exceptionally wonderful place to visit when in San Diego. The museums and festivals are exceptional, and there's even an area designated for the artist community.

I originally tried to paint this scene en plein air, but became overwhelmed by everything that was going on in the scene. So I snapped a photo and used it for a reference. I loved the backlit late afternoon sky against the contrasting architecture of the buildings.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit the park if you ever land in San Diego!
