Later in the evening I worked on this one at the beach. There was a really nice light effect that I tried to capture from life.
Last night I took it into my studio and finished it up. It's 8x10".
The next morning was gray and foggy, but the headlands have such interesting unique structures that you can make cool designs easily. I used plenty of ivory black to get quick color harmony and focused mostly on value control. This is probably my best one. 9x12".
Before I left the area that evening, I walked down Big River to find this scene which also feels at home in any western state, really. There were a steady stream of kayakers along the river, so I managed to capture one as I finished the painting. This one is 9x12".
