Today's paint out was in conjunction with the California Art Club held at Lake Chabot in Castro valley. A gorgeous dry day to paint in the Bay Area and meet some fellow plein air painters. It was nice meeting you all and thank you for the cookies.
For painting number two I decided to walk up the trail that goes around the lake. Unfortunately it took longer than I had anticipated to find a location to set up and paint. This left me an hour to paint this study. Since I knew time was short it forced me to plan ahead and constantly move around the canvas more.
