4.5x7.5 inches. Gouache on toned paper.
We were considering different places to go for our final location of the trip. Vanessa had just got some yummy strawberry jam from the Swanton Berry Farm, and Ano Nuevo State Park was nearby. We were both feeling a little fatigue from going hard the past five days, so we didn't want to put too much effort into it. We weren't super familiar with this park, but we were so glad we decided to stop and pay the parking fee! What a beautiful beach! Pretty secluded and not very many people there compared to Santa Cruz. I did two paintings there and this was the more successful one, even though I had less time to chase the light. I had a lot of fun simplifying this scene, even if it was out of necessity.
