I spent most of the afternoon working in the studio, so it wasn’t until late in the day that I took off with my watercolors. I drove to my favorite spot along the cliffs where I have a view of the surf crashing below along the jagged black lava rocks. I decided to paint a small painting from inside my car as it had been drizzling and was still wet outside.The clouds were already turning a pinkish and purple hue with the dimming light. I focused on keeping my marks fresh to reflect the aliveness of the tumbling sea and crashing waves which contrasted with calm and distant clouds.
