Trinidad, CA

May 11, 2010

Driving up the coast of northern California.  I’d heard the town of Trinidad was the place for amazing tide pools. We seem to have come at the wrong time, or at the wrong beach or something – but we did find this scenic view. I couldn’t resist this towering rock with the miniature forest on top. It’s like a giant Bonsai garden. There’s some incredible forest around this area as well. Intensely overgrown, fern covered, mossy. I’m going to have to head back and do some more painting up there. I tried a few sketches, but for now, I was defeated by the dense forest. Sometime soon I’ll head back and take a second shot :)

    I love your WC style-this is stunning.
    Have you ever considered teaching a workshop in WC plein aire?
    I always enjoy seeing your No.Ca. WC’s.
