Campbell Heritage Theatre, February 16th, 2012

A beautiful crisp, clear day in bright sunshine, but we certainly needed jackets.  The reflecting pool was a huge challenge!
The Campbell Heritage Theater is a handsome building and really shines on a bright day.    We could only get about 20 yards from the building which presented some challenges as far as perspective.    In discussing this with Jenny & Sylvia we concluded that painting buildings like these plein air presents problems one wouldn't face painting them from a photograph -- things I hadn't considered before.    So I definitely plan to attend the Santa Clara Train Station session next week focusing on "Perspective" -- just the short discussion we had in Campbell was very useful.Brad Santos

Thanks for the opportunity to really see this beautiful building I've overlooked many times before.
