After several trips to Torrey Pines, hiking and painting all around, I kept coming back to this spot on the beach at the entry of the park. I was enchanted by the simplicity of the blue lifeguard tower, with the dramatic backdrop of cliffs. I spent an afternoon at Torrey Pines State Beach capturing this scene. I challenged myself to paint on a larger canvas than usual (for plein air). It was a spectacular day, and I totally enjoyed the process of painting large-scale, on location. Another plein air painting as part of the ongoing La Jolla Plein Air Series, hosted by Misfit Gallery. Read about it on my blog, 'Updates from the Easel'...
