Sonoma


This is spring time, May, in Sonoma.  I had this beautiful reference photograph from my recent visit there but I wanted to do a painting with the point of interest up high, so I moved the houses and other building to the top of the hill - and let some of the rain cloud spilling into the trees.

Swami's - Early Morning Walk


A study done on location at Swami's.  The mornings have been so clear and sunny at the beach, (so a-typical - usually we have the May-Greys) that it's been very good painting weather - lots of shadows and contrasts.
