For us east coasters, the Pacific was an untamed beast, quite different from our usually gentle Atlantic. Just that fact that we were peering down from a cliff and that the brave souls who ventured to the beach were all ON THE SHORE was foreign. Not that we do not have sunbathers on the shore, but there are ALWAYS bathers or surfers in the water, even on the coldest of days.
I decided to use a palette knife on this scene to help capture the power and texture.
Hope you have a great weekend!
