This was painted on Venice Beach, late Sunday afternoon…almost sunset. Very hazy, the mist obliterating part of the hills in the distance…very gray…Drumming could be heard in the distance. There were lots of people, but I left them out. We had lucked into a parking space…and dragged a wagon of supplies onto the beach. Have to figure out a way to be more efficient about this one of these days….very little actual paint was needed for this small study.
