Point Lobos, located along the ruggedly picturesque California coastline, is a natural wonder that enchants visitors with its breathtaking beauty. Often referred to as the “crown jewel” of California’s state parks, the protected state reserve boasts a landscape of dramatic cliffs, pristine beaches, and lush forests. Its crystal-clear waters reveal a mesmerizing underwater world, making it a popular destination for divers and snorkelers.

Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters weekly printout was at the preserve, and I joined them. The last time they were, there, I painted a scene looking south down the coast. The sea has been unusually calm much of the past several weeks, so this time, I painted a quiet cove. Below are some pictures from the day. Although quite a few showed up, limited parking spread us out over a wide area.

Below is my painting after about two hours. With a little touchup, I think it is a keeper.
