Local Coast

"Local Coast"
30" x 40"
oil on canvas

The inspiration for this painting is from El Morro Beach just below Corona Del Mar on the way south to Laguna Beach.
I wanted the atmosphere to feel simultaneously warm and cool by layering on the thin layers of opposing color tones to achieve this effect.
By using a pastel and natural color pallet my intent was to keep the painting’s overall edges softened with a bent toward the minimal for a serene and time standing sense of the place rather than a full visual description.
