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.
