Acrylic on Canvas Panel - 14 x 18 Ω
Took some good pictures on my last road trip, so I thought I'd try painting some of 'em. Trying to work bigger now. These are so easy for me on little postcards, but seeming impossible on larger panels. So I must push on.
I got interrupted after doing the initial sketch and blocking in of dark shapes. I did manage to get the sky started and take a photo. Tomorrow I'll get the basic color shapes in and then start refining them. And big brushes only!

Wow. I don't know. They have a great cafe on the side of the highway with a gorgeous view of the ocean. We could see whales from our seats while sipping local brew.

There was also a "dude" next door who was proudly hawking his hand-made surfboards, which he fashions out of 200 year-old redwood. One of those only-in-california moments fer sure.

It was very conspicuous from Highway 1, if u didn't see it, it's gone. this was in the 1950-1960's. I expect land is too valuable now for "factories".
