Monterey Bay Studies 2019

During my show Low Tide, I’ll be exhibiting a collection of ten small landscape studies inspired by my travels to Monterey Bay California. I began getting ready for my December 2019 show at Waterstone Gallery by painting in several different sketchbooks following my trip last spring. I filled pages with blocks of color and loose brushstrokes, not giving much thought to color combinations and composition but at the same time trying to capture the essence of this magical coastline. I think of these works on paper as warm-up studies for my larger paintings.
