Once I walked onto this beach, I thought it had to be one of the most stunning places on earth. The mountains and cliffs perfectly framed the brilliant blue Pacific. I couldn't really focus on anything but painting. My family took off for a walk while I climbed up the sandy slopes to get a place out of the wind.
It was a little less windy but my paint and sketch are coated in sand. Very authentic.
I painted with a small set of casein which I find lacking the colors I am used to for mixing. But I did my best.
Photos can't do this place justice. Maybe a real finished painting could. I'm reviewing a book I have of the California impressionists. Fun to see what I saw through their eyes.
