Heat wave

First try at Sunset Cliffs, super hot muggy day.

It has been so hot here.  We hardly ever get such a long lasting hot humid week.  Eventually I couldn’t stand being stuck inside for yet another day and went outside to paint.  It was my first paint-out at Sunset Cliffs and wow, I will be back!  So much to see it was hard to decide where to focus.

This is also my first Plein Air painting since I took the Summer Noah Bradley intensive, during which I mostly concentrated on digital work.  It was great to get back to the oil, and I think the skills are very complementary.
