El Capitan Cove

elcapitancove-gleason-1

18×24″ Oil on Canvas– I loved the gold glare from the low winter sun illuminating the cove just south of El Capitan State Beach.  I have been painting in oils for the first time in a while and am starting to enjoy them… I’m not always patient for the slow drying time, but I have a lot more control over the color than I do with my acrylics.  (They dry differently than they look when they are wet.)
