Day 5 "Coit Tower"

30 Paintings in 30 days
Day 5
Coit Tower
10" x 8"
oil on canvas
This photo was taken at sunset in December.  My daughter and I played tourist in San Francisco.  I have been at this spot several times but this was the first time at sunset.  The top of Coit Tower has a clear 360 degree view of San Fran and both bridges.  The tower is 210 feet tall on top of Telegraph Hill.  My challenge on this one was perspective.  I see know that I could have made it smaller at the top to give it the real feeling of looking up at this.  I hope some of these experimental paintings will turn into a large painting.
