The backlit clouds moved so quickly. This determined that the sky would be the first thing to paint. I didn't know if the light would change to fully sunlit or fully overcast at any moment, so I made myself work very quickly to get it all down, starting with palette knives and bigger brushes. Every vantage point had marvelous views of the Oakland port and San Francisco skyline, so I'll be back to this location again.
