Had a chance to paint from my reference photo this view of Point Lobos, one of my favorite spots to paint. Nothing like painting there en plein air, but this will do. Enjoy!

And, a bonus painting. A little study from The Presidio.

Hi Ed. The Point Lobos painting is really good, but man I gotta tell you that I love the study. The colors and values work so well. The light is wonderful. Wish my studies looked this good.
Very nice study. I love the light. Also, I notice that many of your paintings have a wonderful, somewhat unusual blue in the skies and throughout. Are you mixing up something special? Or using something exotic?
Randy: I do occasionally use Manganese Blue, very sparingly. It’s an incredibly vibrant, blue/green, cerulean substitute.
Hi Ed. i like both of these. especially the little bonus painting . . . i think it’s the strong value contrast that grabs me. Holly
