California North Coast

Plein Air Outing In January?

Baker Beach1We’re in the middle of a mini-heatwave here on the northcoast of California. It was almost 70F/20C today. I was invited to join some other local artists at the beach and off I went this afternoon for a few hours. It was a stunning day. I did two 8×8″ watercolors, kind of limbering up again since I haven’t done any location work since the trip to Wyoming in September. It was fun being out with friends and colleagues and I’ll be going again tomorrow. On Friday it’s supposed to go back to more normal temperatures for this time of year here with highs in the 50s.

Baker Beach2Loved the light on this rock topped with some trees.

Getting my paints wetted and ready. I'm using a set of Yarka watercolors.

Local artist Steve Porter works on a painting of sunlight coming through the trees on a cliff at one end of the beach.

It was a perfect afternoon.

  1. It was a perfect day out painting with friends in a beautiful location. So glad to meet you and hear about the SKB week and some stories from Mongolia. I admire your painting and drawings. Jody Bryan
