First day of the competition, and thankfully awoke to sunshine. First sun I’ve seen here in the two days I’ve been here. Nice. I ended up painting this morning at Montana De Oro in a cove there. At least 4 other painters were visible. I’m happy with this one. I might bring out the reflections of the cliffs a bit more in the water. What do you think?

Dover in San Luis Obispo

“Dover in San Luis” – Oil on Linen – 11×14

This was a quicky…maybe, 20 minutes? I meant to paint the bluffs again, but as I was setting up I noticed how the light was hitting these stepping stones of white cliff. Don’t know if it’s a keeper or not. The other artist on the beach with me really liked it.

Natural steps

Nature’s Steps – Oil on Canvas – 6×8

  1. First impression of the “nature’s steps” painting is very strong. A good spontane observation, a fresh looking painting. I would at least keep it for inspiration.
