Asilomar #1

Done on location at Asilomar State Beach looking south. (about half an hour)

Watercolor on paper

Comments
When I got out to the beach, I was struck by how wonderful it looked, it was a overcast day, but there was no wind at all, and the clouds all had those seamless, silvery gradations into one another.  The sun was poking through in spots.

Aside from the wonderful clouds, because of the dilution of the light, there was a lot of  atmospheric perspective.  I was trying to capture a little bit of that in this piece.
