San Diego 100 (#85) - Rancho Santa Fe, California Landscape Painting

Rancho Santa Fe (SD100-85)

The downtown area of Rancho Santa Fe is so carefully and elegantly designed it almost looks like a movie set.  Restaurants, shops, offices are housed in Spanish hacienda-style buildings.  Many have red tile roofs.  Several businesses have an ornate wrought-iron sign hanging outside.

All of these in the meticulously landscaped surroundings have a cozy village appeal - from somewhere in Spain or south of the border.  Because the entire area around here used to be a eucalyptus tree farm (read yesterday's post), many landscaping trees are, of course, tall eucalyptus, which makes soft shadows on any sunny day.
