Arch Rock – Little Corona Del Mar Beach

It was a beautiful day at Little Corona Del Mar Beach in Newport yesterday (I’m back in Southern California for a few weeks). It reminded me why I love painting the coast. There’s nothing like perfect weather, the beach and some paint brushes in hand.

Thanks to everyone who commented and followed along with me on the California coast trip. I hadn’t done that before even though I grew up in California. It was fun and challenging. Honestly though, next time I’m thinking I’ll have to choose an area and just stay there to paint. I found myself choosing between several really great spots to paint because I was limited on time. Twenty days just isn’t enough time for all of the beautiful spots on the CA coast.

A few of my favorites to paint were Carmel, Elk and the Big Sur coastline. The number of great places to paint in Big Sur was almost overwhelming. Julia Pfeiffer beach seemed like such a beautiful place to paint but by the time we arrived there was only another 30 minutes of daylight.

I hope you enjoyed following along with me. I’ve been thinking I’d love to do a trip like this on the East coast. We’ll see…

Now back to painting…
