Carpinteria Cliffs - 6x12

beach bluffs carpinteria cliffs ocean rincon

I played with the surface a little before painting this piece.  I like the feeling of linen (because it's finer than canvas) but it's still a little too porous for my liking.  I prepped this one by applying a pretty thick coat of gesso with a palette knife. I really liked the result, maybe I'll try it with some old canvases I have lying around.
