I PAINTED THIS?one hour sketch on the north slope of Tumamoc on a beautiful winter afternoon. Storm clouds were coming and going,?dropping?a few sprinkles on me and the painting. ?Lots of plants in bloom–especially brittle bush which literally covers the entire mountain with bright yellow.
For this sketch I used the same acrylics that I used to paint the?Presidio Mural. I’ve found that they are actually great for these quick paintings, although there is a bit of value shift from wet to dry colors. The biggest issue I have is getting an strong opaque yellow without using the toxic cadmiums.
