Work in Progress – Dreaming of Del Mar

I literally fell in love with San Diego while visiting my son Patrick in La Jolla last month. Here’s a painting I did of the coast at Del Mar which just won a CPS Honor Award at the Connecticut Pastel Society Member show at Gallery 53 in Meriden, CT this weekend! I used a reference photo of the coastline at Del Mar, CA for this painting.  Here are the four main stages of the painting, starting with the basic drawing, then color block-in, then starting to add details and pay attention to edges, then the final painting.
