"On the Cliff" - Monterey Peninsula
6x12 acrylic on canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction
This is another painting for the VPO visit to the Monterey Peninsula in California. The original Google map view can be seen here.
This is one of those paintings that basically paints itself. I saw the scene in Google and knew instantly that I had to paint it. I wound up doing it in a single sitting, about 3 hours tops. I never understand why some paintings are like that - I just knew what colors, what shapes, and what to do. And I am very pleased with the final piece.
Even though the VPO will take us somewhere else in the world tomorrow morning, I will be roaming this area of California for more of these scenes. I do love to paint life at the ocean!
