"Point Lobos" 24x24" Oil on Canvas

Stage 2

Stage 1: The Block-in.

Not a bad spot. :-)

The new Soltek easel hard at work.

Point Lobos. What an absolutely jaw droppingly beautiful place! We lucked in with perfect weather the whole day and a big swell was running which made for some very dramatic surf. I set up right on the edge of a cliff in my favourite spot of many and painted my heart out for 4 solid hours which flew by in no time. I was in love with the scene and ready to paint in a much looser fashion after the tighter rendering of my previous painting on the wharf. The scene spoke of movement so I tried to emphasise that with every brushstroke. Very happy with this one at the moment.

Nice painting Richard. Quick question, how do you handle the canvas, being taped like that.
