Point Dume, Malibu

Beach Scene (5)    5″ x 7″ oil 

It was a beautiful day to paint at the beach today. I was hoping to paint the point but as oftentimes happens in this area, film crews were here and blocked off that area so I found contentment painting the ocean instead.

Beginning stages of beach Scene (4) 

8″ x 10″ oil on canvas board

I decided to work a bit larger in order to give the focal point of this beach scene more room for detail. I have also included a photo of Gunther the French Bulldog drinking and playing in Cooper and Luna’s water bowl. My paintings are definitely taking longer with all the distractions but he is pretty darn cute!
