Paintin’ n’ Dronin’ at Rocky Point

Rocky Point is a captivating gem nestled along the dramatic Big Sur coastline in California. A restaurant (currently closed) stands over this rugged promontory offering breathtaking vistas of the Pacific Ocean  with majestic cliffs, weathered rocks, and crashing waves that create a mesmerizing symphony of nature. 

I joined the Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters for a paint out at the point last Wednesday.  It was an unusually clear and warm day as we have had somewhat of a ‘heat wave’ here in the Monterey Bay area.  

Enjoy this short video painting along the spectacular Big Sur coastline.  Be sure to turn the volume up!

Here is my painting after a couple hours work.  Still needs a little something…I am not sure I like all the juniper trees on the left hand side.

BTW, I forgot to write a weblog about our August trip and painting in Iceland and Norway, so look for another weblog soon.
