Pearl Street Beach
9 x 12 x 0.25 in., oil on canvas hardboard
This scene captures the dawn hours at Pearl Street Beach, a hidden gem in south Laguna Beach, CA. I when I started painting the scene, the shadows from the oceanside bluffs extended past the rocky point in the scene, and by the time I had completed the painting, the shadows had crept all the way to the shore. Pictured here, the shadows are somewhere in between. I wanted to convey the chill of the dawn shadows as the viewer awaits the warmth of the sun to come ashore from behind them. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it!
