This painting is from the same day as yesterday's post, a little farther south. The weather, while still misty (it is the ocean side, after all) has definitely warmed up. Very sunny...
There is a perfectly nice lighthouse at this park, but I wasn't quite up to tackling it, so I worked on this bluff instead.

As you may notice, there's no umbrella attached to the easel here (as in yesterday's post). It was far too windy, so I did without.

I also did without sunscreen, and developed quite a nasty burn on my neck and arms.

you've gotten up to speed pretty quickly I'd say. I like it.
I read the post about the lighthouse and the tidal pools. I love places like that but most of all, "I love a road trip". Paint on.

These plein airs are great, Jason. Makes me long to get back to the Oregon coast, it is so beautiful.

I like Hopper almost *too* much to think about tackling the lighthouse, but it *is* pretty neat.

Thanks! I had (and have been having) lots of fun with it.

I have always loved the Oregon coast (I lived in Lincoln City for a while), but I have to say northern California, to say... San Franciso/Monterey really grew on me.
