Plein Air Painting at Asilomar and Pacific Grove, California

Near Pacific Grove - 9x12, oil

The beautiful weather continued yesterday.  After a few morning clouds, the sun came out, casting a brilliant light on the long waves sweeping to the beach.  We decided to head out on Sunset Drive toward Asilomar and Pacific Grove to stroll and, of course, to paint.  The rocks along the bluff are full of wonderful nooks and crannies for the waves to explore; I could watch the play of surf on rock and sand for weeks and never get bored.   The birds here are engaging, too.  I spied an egret clinging to a rock, and he was also apparently watching the waves.

Now, here are some images from yesterday.

I'm not a Facebook person. I only receive your blogs. I love the sunset photo -- really great. I hate the prove-your-not-a-robot! the picture is so fuzzy that it is unreadable!
