Gray morning in Laguna.
Laguna’s a hike from my place and I left early to beat the traffic. This is around 8 AM.
Crystal Cove state park- a great place for a not too strenuous hike with plenty of scenery.
Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Beach.
This is a hiking place I don’t remember the name of in Laguna Beach. There were all these signs about mountain lions and another sign saying Please Sign In At Visitor Center. While I was signing I asked the worker if it was so they could identify the mountain lion-gnawed carcasses or what. But she said it was just for statistics.
From last year in Crystal Cove park.
I really intended this as just a color study for a larger piece, but I like the way it came out.
Painted last year, started en plein air (outside on the sand) in Crystal Cove, California.
A great place to hike in Laguna Beach. This is from last year… and look at the glare on the wet paint! Going to have to re-shoot this.
This was from a period when I got restless with my normal way of working and was trying out different alla prima approaches.
