Tomales Bay


Acrylic on Panel - 8 x 10 inches  Ω

I took a short trip to Tomales Bay to paint with some very experienced and well known Plen Aire painters. You've probably heard of some of them, but I'm not dropping names here. One of them wrote two of my favorite painting instruction books.

In any case, it was a little intimidating at first, but everyone just got into their own thing. Well, almost everyone. My dad and I couldn't resist having a look over everyone's shoulder, now and again. There was a wide range in styles and technique. Really interesting to see.

This is my first for the day, a view of the foot of the Bay (if that is the term), as seen from our hosts' property. It was a bit overcast, and I think I got that, but I'm so into my oranges now that I think the warmth I put into the fields is a bit much for a grey day.
