View from Third Beach - 8x10 Plein Air Painting

beach California carpinteria plein air

I painted this the same morning as yesterdays painting.  I usually wouldn't paint a bright sunny scene without any shadows to play with, but I decided to have a go at it anyway.  My favorite part is the brushstrokes in the sand, and that deep teal color of the wave about to break.  
And for some reason the camera didn't want to cooperate with me for this one, in person the sky is not that splotchy looking! 

Oil on canvas panel, 8x10 inches
