Whittier Hills Sunset
Late one evening, I was standing in the Whittier hills watching the sunset, when I noticed the shape of a eucalyptus tree with the city lights of Long Beach far in the distance. I returned the next evening with my camera determined to capture that beautiful sight. What I ended up with was a disappointing photo with lots of shadows that showed no details and did not represent what I felt about the view.
I worked on this painting in my studio, recalling from my memory what I loved about the scene.
