Continuing in my quest to develop ideas for new paintings, I worked outside at Golden Gardens Beach today. The light and sky were basically the same as they were in winter, but the temperature was much more pleasant. I found a great place to paint in the dunes, away from all the people.

Like last time I was here, I painted to the accompaniment of the seals who were sunning themselves on a buoy in the sound.
