Cloudy Carpinteria Bluffs, Carpinteria

Upon arriving to the bluffs last Friday I was not inspired by the views and light. It was totally overcast and there were no shadows. Had I not been teaching a class there that day I probably would have gone somewhere else. As I was setting up the easels I looked around at the views and the place started to interest me. While I have used color more forcebly then reality it was actually a great subject. As the afternoon wore on just a little more light came through the clouds and I was able to feel out some shadows and highlights. I guess what I am getting at is that it takes time, patience and a little imagination to see the beauty that surrounds us.
