This was my first painting of the week at the 17th Annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Invitational. The teal shack at Crystal Cove has been painted innumerable times so finding a unique perspective is a challenge.
I decided to include the shack in the painting but make it more about the activity at Crystal Cover rather than that distinctive teal building. The perspective lines of the benches and post lead into the painting and to the covered patio, under which my friend and fellow artist Aimee Erickson is painting.
