This is the second study of views from the area around Buena Vista Park. This is actually from the “Scent Garden” of the Park Hill condos across the street from the park, looking South-East. The distant hill is Corona Heights.
In this painting, I concentrated on contrasting the natural elements in the top third with the man-made structures below. I’m having fun, figuring out how to play with these geometric shapes to make interesting patterns. I’m not sure the values in the foreground are quite right (probably too light, as they’re in shadow), but I think there’s an interesting juxtaposition of shapes and colors.
