Mist and Light

Plein air painting of California poppies on the Big Sur coast of Central Califonria's Monterey County

Artwork Notes:

Hunting for poppies on a trip up the coast back in 2019. I found them here, but also found a constant raining mist. Had to set the easel up inside the van and open the slider for the view to paint this one without getting soaked.⠀
