One of my favorite drives is Hwy 1 up the California Coast towards Big Sur and Carmel. On a clear day, there are some great locations to stop and take in the views. This scene is looking south towards San Simeon.
This past Summer's cloudiness did have some advantages. When the sun did come out, I sure appreciated it more. This was one of those days when the sun finally peaked out in the late afternoon before sunset.
I have been working on this piece periodically for well over a year. I have added some things and changed others. It has been a process of listening and waiting to see where the painting itself wanted to go, rather than me imposing my will upon it. It has morphed into quite a new and different painting since it began. Now I can leave it alone as I am quite satisfied with it.
I am a contemporary professional landscape painter living in southern California. Although I'm painting most days, I post my new work as it is completed or nearing completion.
