Sea Cliff & Monterey Cypress

The Fall is the best time to paint the coast here as there’s usually not as much fog.  I expected to paint an ocean view, but came across this view of a field and cliff (click for Google Map of the location, just north of Half Moon Bay).  I liked the arrangement of shapes and colors, and the division of space. I kept it both realistic and a bit abstract so I get get the viewer to focus on this overall impression, and not focus on detail.

What do you think?
