Took a bike ride along the bay yesterday--each time I do I ask myself, Why don't I do this everyday? (Answer: Earning a living is very time-consuming ... ).
Stopped to do a little plein air sketching.
My dune grasses need some work--there's a balance to be struck in there somewhere!
Also, I want to stop being so "casual" about my evergreens, especially since they are often the anchor in a composition like this: I think the painting would be better if I was more observant about the tree's silhouette.
In my town every street ends in access to the bay and most have a thoughtfully placed bench.
