Drove down to meet some friends at Los Rios, San Juan Capistrano. Didn't get settled to paint until 10:30. Light was changing and I knew by the heat, that it would be a quick painting period. So 6 inch square and a small space would work. Light will always move. It is much easier for me, to keep track of shadows and light with simple shapes and composition.
So here it is. Enjoyed a nice lunch and drove home. Perfect!
