The park above Leadbetter Beach in beautiful Santa Barbara, just before dawn. I’d gone to paint the beach and spent some time working here while the tide went out a little. What that entails is a headlamp, a clip on light on my painting surface, a Clif Bar and one of those cans of Starbucks espresso. The preliminary studies for this painting are from last winter.
Often we go on family vacations to Santa Barbara, so I try to fit in painting around the edges. This is one of those paintings. for sale
