"Eucalyptus Trees" ©

This painting is another San Clemente plein air piece. I chose not to enter this piece in the competition because I felt that there wasn't a clear light source and focal point. The sun went behind the hill over my shoulder and that was that. I went back a couple of days later to see if I could spend more time with the view but a wonderful gray mass of clouds floated in off of the ocean creating a lovely moody scene, a totally different view. In truth that is the excitement of plein air painting, you are not in control of the elements and just along for the ride.

Oil on Linen, 12" X 16"
