This was the first painting I did on Tuesday night at the PACE 17. The views were stunning if inspiring, perhaps, overly ambitious paintings. I was surprised by how much I managed to get in to this piece.
This is the last of the plein air Laguna series for now.
Later that day, on the beach.
This is the same location, a new study of yet foggier effects.
This is from the next day. It was foggy and soon to get foggier!
A second attempt and more fog.
This is another painting from that day but down on the beach instead of looking downwards.
I painted this a couple weeks ago. There are 6 more. I haven’t been posting because the injustice and Machiavellian behavior of those now running the art department at LACC continues to boggle my mind and eat into my precious time. This painting at the beach thing took me out of survival mode for a few days.
There was a group paint out at this beach but I never really even find the group. It’s not easy to park and drag the supplies and it was (and always is) way windy. I had to actually clip my hat to my jacket. But it was fun and I like the way the paint mimics the sea foam.
This was painted on the beach a couple weeks ago–with a night set up that we rigged up so I can see my paints and painting in the dark. My next posts will be larger more ambitious indoor pieces so stay tuned.
