Pt. Bonita Trio - Ocean/Cliff Gouache Studies

I noticed a big change in the weather today with clouds approaching quickly. I set out to create some rapid lighting and mood studies of the cliffs and ocean in gouache before any rain showers would pummel my easel. It was interesting to block-in three small images at once. Not being a slave to the location, I saw this as a chance to try variations on a theme. I took some video with a portable camera as an experiment as well. Here are some of the stills.

Locations and studies like this can serve as a point of inspiration later on with studio work or for commercial projects. Be sure to check out my new upcoming Inventing Landscapes Workshop - March 9-10, 2013 - SF, hope you can make it! I'm excited by the group who has signed up so far.
