New Landscapes

Here are two landscape paintings I did during the past month which have been accepted into the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association "Less is More" show of small paintings.
I did them both at Crystal Cove State Park, one of my favorite places to paint.
The first one was done at El Moro Cove, which is now part of the state park a couple of coves south of Crystal Cove. It was cold and foggy that morning, a perfect time to paint actually, since the light stays consistent for much longer than when the sun is out. That's when the pressure is on!
The second one is painted where the Crystal Cove Cottages are located. This cottage is actually the main office where you check in if you've reserved one of the many cottages available for rental. It was a beautiful afternoon, and so quiet and peaceful up on the bluff in the sagebrush that grows wild there.
