Cabin on the beach at China Camp

This is about the fourth time this month that I have been to China Camp State Park. I felt obligated to do something in the village, a building or boat or something there on the beach. No water this time just the hint of tidal action on the beach.

I struggled with the background trees above the cabin, but decided they were background and forget it. The rest of the painting worked out OK. I am trying to mix colors on the paper and maintain the transparency of the paint. I am feeling a bit more comfortable with the new palette of colors that I have been using now, but have some way to go to really feel at ease and knowledgeable.

  1. Larry,
    Another strong painting. The use of perspective on the dirt road creates a wonderful sense of depth, and the light/shadows of the buildings and trees reads perfectly. Great job.
