It was early, but already hot, so I went to paint in the deep shadow beneath the Coronado Bridge. At first, it seemed too industrial, and I thought I might move on. But I began to look at the big shapes the columns made, and then at the way the shapes of the sky, sea and bridge complemented each other. The limited colors appealed to me too.
I used flat blocks of color to convey the massive strength of the structure, and contrasted it with the more organic sky and sea.
