At the beach, Santa Cruz, CA

The mountains are lovely, but I do love that we live less than an hour from the sea. Painted with Cobra water mixable oils on a cheap Art Alternatives canvas board. It was a struggle to paint on this chalky rough surface. I've since read online that this board is mostly used by kids. Apparently you have to sand it or coat it generously with gesso (or both) to use it for anything serious. Oh well.
