I had to fix the image I first uploaded. I had forgotten to put in the cross beams on the lower half of the bridge tower, not up to code!
This is a view from Middle Harbor Park at the Port of Oakland, CA. The water came easier this time. I practiced some different techniques at home since Monday's frustration. The fog is rolling in like a train through the Golden Gate. I got a real case of the shakes when I was trying to paint the cables on the bridge. They are a little wavy but its too scary to try to fix it. There was no shade where I was so I was baking. That encouraged me to paint faster. I think that helped with the water.
