Goleta Beach Full Moonrise and Ellwood Fog

Goleta Beach Moonrise

I went out painting with my friend Chris Potter to catch the sunset and moonrise at Goleta Beach last week.  It was a fun challenge to paint quickly as those cliff faces changed every color on my palette in the course of an hour.  And this one of Ellwood started off foggy and ended in the sun…  I’m starting to think I should try making giant flipbooks to animate the changing light.
