Juicy!

In Laguna, I had fun producing a few small rocks/surf studies, with lots of juicy paint! Using this technique in representing water is particularly effective because water is mostly made of “edges” of color in sharp contract. This, and pallette knife technique work realy well.

Southern California

Just returned from a trip to Southern California where I painted the Back Bay of Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, etc.  This is a sunset on the Back Bay. Like Monet, I was attempting to capture the essense of this light, without focusin on representing recogizable landscape elements.
