Fleeting Moments



Here is what I was working on last weekend. I had what was nearly a perfect day on Saturday because I was able to take a bike ride, do some photography, paint, and spend the afternoon with my girlfriend. The only thing that was missing was some jamming on my guitar. The painting was started late in the afternoon/sundown part of the day when the light changes very rapidly. The colors were shifting all over the place, so I did a quick lay-in with pen and gouache, then took a photo so I could work on it a bit more at home. When I looked at the image later, it was very unresolved, but the basics were there, so I just solidified some of "mushy" areas.

The next day, I went to Big Sur with Kristel and found some more rapidly changing environments. The fog was blasting in off the ocean with surprising force, but there were magnificent moments of sunlight that disappeared in a flash. I would have loved to paint the scene, but it was pretty formidable circumstances, and I was not prepared. Perhaps in the future I will make it out on a similar day. I do have some photos to remind me of the fantastic colors of the water and the land until then.
