Stucco Canvas

In Santa Barbara, there is an abundance of white stucco walls due to the visual continuity guidelines mandated by the city. This presents numerous opportunities to use stucco as a canvas to highlight the textures and shapes that surround them. Here, outside the Post Office, I was initially drawn to the scalloped shadows of the overhanging tile. However, I realized that there was potentially much more happening than my initial observation suggested. With limited space between the wood fence and the wall, I decided to incorporate that into the scene, and somehow it just seemed to fit.
