Had a wonderful morning painting this one flat out trying to capture those huge clouds rolling off the coast, occasionally copping an easel full of water (you can even see some authentic water dribble marks down the left side of the painting). It really pays to dry off your palette rather than try to mix oil paints on top of it.
Love that feeling when you just have to get a painting out and you're ripping into it in the first big colour blocks - fantastic. The clouds here get a lot more vertical than those in New Zealand, making some really unlikely shapes. I'm thinking this could be a good morning spot for one of the Painter's Retreat days coming up soon because there is shade here till 11:30am and great views both ways. Good times.
