Embassy Hotel, San Diego

San Diego Urban Landscape Painting

I’ve wanted to do a painting of the Embassy Hotel in Hillcrest for a long time, but I had a hard time deciding which facade would make the best painting.

I finally decided on this one, because I liked the simple, functional look of the brick, contrasted with the elaborate Italian/Spanish/Moorish fantasy palace style architecture of the street facades.

I like those facades too… maybe another day I’ll paint them!
