Just recovered from a 5 day illness. It’s nice to have some energy to paint after being sick so long. This is from a reference photo of Montana De Oro, in San Luis Obisipo County. I paint this location for the annual plein air show at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art. For this painting, my focus was getting the light/shadow colors just right on the bluffs. Trying to keep it simple. Everything else are supporting characters. Enjoy!
