Paintings from an East Bay group of landscape artists working outdoors.
9th Street in Berkeley
The group met at Harrison Park and decided to revisit the location at Camelia and the Ninth Street. On 9th St. looking to the South, the interesting shape of the building drew my attention. In the painting, the foreground on the right was very empty. I painted the sign on the road which leaded me to add the figure to the painting. I hoped it helped to balance the composition. This was done with oil on a 12 by 16 gesso board." Philip Ng
