Everyone posed for pictures here, and I wonder what they were thinking about. Revolutionaries being executed by firing squad? Bombarding the city during the War of the Spanish Succession? Soldiers pouring boiling oil on them through the murder holes in the ceiling?

Hillcrest Watercolor Painting San Diego

Another morning watercolor in Hillcrest. I wanted to paint The Brass Rail up the street. It’s a cool old building, maybe Art Deco but I’m not sure exactly what architectural style. There’s a good vantage point from a coffee shop on that corner- but it was packed, no seats. So I went with this instead. for sale
