I went down hard on my back last week with the flu so when I got back up again my wife and I blew out of town to spend the weekend at the beach.
All the way out here here and no further...
I did get one little 8 x 10 panel off the night before on Tunnel beach of the pins and needles I drove out for, and I will post the sketch as soon as it has dried enough to lay on the scanner. Very monochromatic – mostly burnt sienna, viridian and white – which is how things look around here during winter. But starkly beautiful none the less. I like the composition I ended up with. Kinda Franz Kline- or Robert Motherwell-like in mood. I should do more.
Me, giving the pins and needles an evil squint after timing the tides correctly. Got a late start but knocked out a quick 30 minute sketch anyway. The secret tunnel I allude to cuts through the distant bluff behind me.
Next week: Maui, a contrast to Oregon.
Can't wait for the sun...
Oh and there is now only one spot left in my upcoming March indoor Essential Alla Prima Painting Techniques workshop. If you want to join us let me know immediately. Otherwise I will start a waiting list Wednesday.
