"East Beach Fall Morning", East Beach, Santa Barbara

"East Beach Fall Morning"
5 x 7 inches
oil on panel

This was the first of four paintings I made this day. I started down on East Beach for the Sunrise and watched the sunset at Hammond's. It was amazing to be outside watching all the changing conditions. Then to be totally amazed at the sunset. Even though I was tired and hungry, I stayed to do the final piece. I am really glad I did because its probably one of the best ones I have made. It made me realize that instead of painting the whole day, it might be better to watch a good part of the day and then when your moment hits, you are fresh and ready to perform.
