San Diego Eucalyptus Trees, Gray Day

Eucalyptus in Balboa Park- for sale

A grey day.

I started this painting, and got to here when it started raining. Normally, I’d come back another day to finish, but then I decided I loved it as-is.

And I thought, this is probably one of those where you put one more brush stroke on it and it doesn’t work anymore.

San Diego Landscape Painting, Eucalyptus Trees in Balboa Park

I love the soaring, graceful lines and cathedral-like vaults made by mature eucalyptus trees.

Like the iconic Washingtonia palm, eucalyptus isn’t a native species to the California coast. Because of that, there’s been a backlash in recent years about planting both these beautiful trees along streets and in parks and neighborhoods.

I can see the logic, though I wouldn’t say I agree with it… because I love these trees!

This stand of eucalyptus is on the edge of Balboa Park, and leads into a Hillcrest neighborhood of gracious old homes.
