Davenport, CA (just north of Santa Cruz) has some really dramatic bluffs that make great subjects for a painting.  The light/shadow colors of the bluffs are interesting because they are light colored, and so reflect light from many different sources, including the sea, land, other rocks nearby, etc.  It’s a fun subject to paint, and a somewhat common theme in my work (eg, 1, 2, 3, and 4).  As always, comments welcome. Enjoy!
