Painting at Crystal Cove, July 2017

I went with Cathi, a friend from PAAR (Plein Air Artists of Riverside), to paint at the beach and despite all my attempts to reduce a lot of gear, I did manage to carry too many things(everything, including my kitchen sink, it seemed like, when I carried them into the bus from my car). There were a few people at the beginning of my time painting, then people put up lots of shelters from the sun and my view was totally blocked. It was a good thing I was quick to complete my painting, which is on the bench in the second photo. I took a bit of time to do the waves, which were completed last. Between the time I started and when I finished, the waves were much larger, and people were keeping away from them. There were helicopters above, as sometimes they scour the coastline for sharks, to warn bathers and surf boarders.
