Another calender illustration

Posted on Saturday 4 July 2009

So I have been doing a calender illustration in each of last 3 years. This particular piece is actually one of the 3 sketches I submitted that didn’t get picked. (I’ll post the final piece chosen for the calender once it comes out)

It was a simple non-conceptual piece but I thought I’d share my romantic view of San Francisco!

Those who live in the Bay Area know that this particular train doesn’t run on the hill but I just love this retro design!!

    Great vibe you have going on there, lovely feeling of evening sunlight. How’s the pastel class going, by the way? Anything to show from it / nuglets of wisdom to pass on?

    Well, it doesn’t get nicer than a simple and beautiful cityscape. I do love the bay area for providing such wonderful inspiration. This is beautiful. I love sketches, at times, more than the final work.

    Thank you very much!

    Yep! It’s a good day to have a walk…only the hill will work you out! ๐Ÿ™‚
    by the way, your mural project looks great!

    Muchas Gracias!

    The class is over now but doesn’t mean I should stop painting in pastel! Obviously Bill Cone’s wisdom only can be passed along if you keep painting and I need to keep it up! Bill is amazing! He’s not only a great painter but a great teacher! I’ll post a few more of those pastel paintings from the class soon!

    thanks buddy!

    Come back!

    Merci como siempre..

    Thanks man! Yeah, I agree, I don’t know how I would have finished this piece had they picked this one. I probably would have ruined it.


    Thanks a lot man!
