Del Mar Sketch

Del Mar Landscape Painting Kevin Inman


I usually try to get my plein air pieces to a higher level of finish. This one didn’t quite get there.

I decided to post it anyway because I thought you might find it interesting to see work in such a raw state. So often, we are exposed only to polished work- which sets an impossibly high standard for students.

Even though this piece didn’t make it, it’s still handy for me to be able to pull these studies off the shelf and double check the light, the atmospheric conditions, the colors in the water and so on, how it made me feel. Also the things you notice while spending time in a place- trains going by, many surfers, the wind too strong for my umbrella- all the little details that might be important in a future piece, especially one conceptualized in the studio.

Commission, headed out the door. Turns out 5 commissions at the same time is a little overcommitted, and everything is weeks or months late. I think this one is ready to go out the door though.

This turned out to be a very fun place to paint. The people on the trains waved as they rolled past, and there were an incredible number of pedestrians.
