Summer Shore

The following is a series of pictures showing my process in painting a shoreline in Pastel.  It is 9X12 on Canson paper using primarily Unisons. Ludwigs, Rembrandt and Sennilier.

I lightly drew the large masses with a pale yellow pastel pencil  on the dark blue paper.

I had a great time working with the clouds in the sky. Just the basic background now on the cliff.

Gentle waves and some wild plants to add interest.

Just another day on the beautiful California coastline.   Enjoy!

    this way of showing the progress at different stages is fascinating. This is just lovely. Water is sooooo difficult, but you make it look easy!

    Thanks guys. The photo was taken so long ago, I’m not sure exactly. But I believe it is an area between here and San Diego.
