Sometimes place names are particularly descriptive. Windansea Beach, along the coast of San Diego, is one of those places. When you are there and ready to paint, it is clear what your painting needs to be about.
The blues of the sea and sky were set off by the yellows of the rocks and sand, and I wanted to capture all of it. I started by focusing on the geometric shapes in the sky, sea, and rocks, but after a photographer came and sat on the cliffs, I put her in it. This shifted the focus, but it still works for me.
