Pacific Ocean Painting

Painting for the first time near the ocean in California, and walking often on the shore, I was influenced by the colors of the sea and the sky and the sand, by the seashells and seaweed, the dark clouds over the horizon in the evening, the shining colors reflected in the sand as the water withdrew. The colors I used were mixed with white (a tint) and again painted in vertical strokes from upper left across and down to finish in the lower right.
