Mission Beach

Mission Beach
Oil on canvas
80cm x 60cm

My first oil painting was this one of Mission Beach, San Diego, on a gloriously sunny Labor Day in 2016. The photograph it’s based on was a hasty snap on my phone to send home to our son and daughter. It’s pretty much just a blaze of sunlight – Southern Californian sunlight!

I struggled with the picture because I really had no idea how to paint, and it shows, but the general effect is pleasing (to me) and, I think, captures the light and, I hope, the heat – it was scorching!
