Here's another painting completed during the Laguna Plein Air Invitational event in October. I started painting this view very early in the morning. My easel was set up along the walkway in Heisler Park which is a popular spot for strolling.

The shadows on the beach didn't stick around for very long and I made the a decision at the start of my process to include them. It always amazes me at how quickly a scene like this changes at the very beginning and end of the day. I am forced to make fast choices and go with my gut response which keeps me from noodling around too much.

Bonjour,

Cette dernière peinture est vraiment très forte... J'aime la profondeur que vous avez magnifiquement bien su traduire. De très belles nuances de couleurs.
Gros bisous
