Captivating Cove

We are so blessed to have had the wonderful experience of living on the Carmel coast. I want to share this secluded beach where we would take our daily walks. A quick sketch is made, the basic elements are drawn up on the canvas and I begin painting with the sky.

The famous Lone Cypress was not far from us. I took the liberty of moving it so you can enjoy the view from our quiet little cove. The foreground will be in shadow to accentuate the sun warmed rocks and Lone Cypress in the distance.

After the water and foregound beach are blocked in reflections of the rocks are pulled straight down into the wet sand. I couldn’t paint this special place without our resident sea otter, Roscoe. Usually around sunset the waters would calm down. We’d walk to the beach, sit on the rocks, watch the setting sun and enjoy his feeding ritual. He seemed to like watching us almost as much as we did looking at him. Probably he wanted to make sure we didn’t steal his tasty seafood dinner! Just click on the image to see little Roscoe enlarged.
