Our State Beaches in Southern California are very beautiful. The beaches in the Laguna Beach region attracts many Artist to its shores. Aliso State Beach is a frequent stop for pleinair painters. I painted this one with the Southern California Pleinair Painters Association (SocalPapa). I like the way the waves intermingle with the rocks that are in turned formed by the waves. The scene gave me a sense of power and balance. It was a good day for painting.
I make my oil paintings are from professional grade oil paints. I allow the brilliance of the colors to enhance the view and emotion of the work. The goal is to express the Southern California light and the feeling of the day in which I painted it.
