Rain and Birds - 8x10 Oil Sketch

California clouds ocean plein air

I wanted to go out and paint (because the clouds were amazing!), but I could tell they were going to open up and pour on me any second.  So I stayed in the studio and painted the view from my window.  The ocean was an amazing color, a teal shade, that made it look much more tropical than it actually is.

Cloudy Drive on the 101 - 5x5

101 freeway clouds palm trees ventura painting

Here's one of the reasons I've never taken to plein air painting, I get inspired at the most inconvenient times! It's hard enough just to catch of photo, let alone pull over and make a painting. Although I did see an artist doing that once, painting on the side of the freeway that is. He was awesome and kind of insane at the same time.
