I painted this small sketch merely to capture the affect of moonlight in the sky in contrast with the ambient light emanating from Cabrillo Blvd in Santa Barbara. It was during a balmy Moonlight Painting Workshop I taught in September 2009.
I consider it art for art sake.
Overall it was a blue harmony, in contrast with the warm sodium vapor street lights; that gave a warm and cozy feeling to the cityscape. The Palm Trees lined the Boulevard in silhouette
