I’m still painting exclusively with a palette knife, learning the technique of managing control of the paint. I’m also getting paintings ready for the pre-exhibition of the San Luis Obispo Plein Air event. This reference photo is a favorite–I can’t wait to paint this spot plein air, it’s at Avila Beach in SLO County. It has many of the subjects I like to paint in a seascape: ice plant, white bluffs, interesting shadow colors (the warm reflected light in the bluff shadow was a blast to paint).

Fantastic!! I love that green and red don’t get all mushed up. The knife work is awesome, Ed. Good luck in SLO~ I won’t be there this year, but will be looking to your blog to see what you do!
Your resent study is really paying dividens. Great color,atmosphere and sense of space.
Wow! The light is really fantastic in this painting. You’ve really got it!
