Fabulous Crystal Cove Experience, New Plein Air Work

"North Shoreline - Crystal Cove"  14"W x 11"H, oil on Fredrix linen panel.  SOLD Just completed from the deck of a Crystal Cove cottage I stayed in for 5 days.  Funny thing is that an art customer of mine saw it in the making and wanted it before it was done.  I love it when things like that happen.  He wanted a painting that reminded him of the experience that Crystal Cove gives him.  Even though I knew it was taken, I still did my very best to create the greatest piece of art yet from my mind and art soul.  This painting depicts the abandoned, yet to be restored north shore cottages on a summer day in August.
I am painting a slightly longer angle of this scene in my studio from another workstudy, it will be placed in my Bower`s Museum art show on September 11-12 in Santa Ana, CA.  I will post an image of it here on the blog when complete.  I am doing a series of Crystal Cove paintings, any that are for sale will be placed on my website.
If you would like to read more about the above painting and my process of painting it, go to my EstherJWilliams website blog and read the article, complete with several step by step images and a storyline.
