Here is a recent pastel on Huntington Beach. They renovation at the beach made this walkway very interesting. Hope I captured that.

Thanks for your comments.

nice, just wish there were people to enjoy that wide space, it looks so empty

The complex in the upper right anchors the whole thing for me.
the walkway is OK too.

Ceu,

It is very rare for me to put people in a landscape. Don't clearly know why. I do know that I tend to spend too much time on a figure and the landscape gets lost. It also may be my since of solitude within any landscape. Sort of a way to step back and look at what surrounds us and appreciate the simplity of it. Landscapes have to be very Zen for me.

Don't get me wrong, I also love figure drawing. My website has a few. I keep them more private though. Sort of my own little enjoyment :)

Ron

Anyone have a take on this?

this strong perspective
is the active playground for
reversing curves,
green against purples-yellow referees,
verticals lining up,
or grouping to cover the massive verticals behind,

this activity would seem at first to be at rest

Great perspective. Never been there. Is that the actual colors?
