"Rocky Shores of Crystal Cove"
9 x 12 oil on linen panel.
It was an overcast morning the day I went out to paint this view of Crystal Cove State Beach. As a result, there weren't very many beach strollers out that morning. I chose this scene because of the strong lead into the painting with the rocks and waterline. Add the slope of the bluff and the large elements of the painting all direct your view into the focal area where you can see hints of the cottages and a few people at Crystal Cove's main beach.
