Farther Along, Sketch

Beach Trail

Caspersen Beach,  Venice again... farther along the trail there's a great spot where the sun sends shadows across the beach early in the morning.  It's impossible to paint fast enough to capture this explosion of light and color.  Took photos with an excellent camera but it doesn't come close what eyes can see.
This is a quick study for a larger painting... will be going back for more!
