Paintings from an East Bay group of landscape artists working outdoors.
Overlooking Carquinez Strait
Blue Tower acrylic on canvas
Painting at Cummings Skyway has been interesting. Views at both the sites we have gone to are good. On one side you see the rolling hills that bring to mind so many California landscape paintings. the other side at the large turnout you can see the Carquinez Bridge and hills also. You are right at one of the entrances to the regional park. But it is not a well maintained entrance and you go down an overgrown path to get there. There is also a short tunnel that takes you to wonderful hill views with grazing cows. But there is something that feels a little isolated. I don't think it is a good place to go alone.
