Each time I visit Sesquit Point at Leo Carrillo State Beach, I am awed with a different mood and view. Sometimes the surf is wild and the wind chases the waves back, other times like the day I painted this the wind was calm and the sun was warm. The tide was very low and the water was glasslike. Just beautiful. -So good for the soul!
|Can you believe how clear|
the water is??
My friend, Teri Starkweather, and I decided to go somewhere to paint together mid-week. The weather had been cold and windy but I really hoped it would be nice by the time out outing rolled around. We decided to take a chance at the beach and it turned out to be terrific. Teri and I hadn't painted together before but we had a great time. She painted the "long" view and I tried to find a spot with an interesting pattern of lights and darks. In David Gallup's class a few weeks back we had talked about painting the glare of the sun on the water, so I decided to try to capture it. Both of us had a great time on an almost perfect day.
I was happy with my little painting which I called "Sunglow".
It's cold and rainy again this week, so I'm glad we went when we did.
