Torrey Pines Nocturne, PCH


"Torrey Pines Nocturne, PCH", 12” x 16” oil on canvas. I donated this new painting to an auction benefiting the San Diego Coast Keepers... http://oceangala.org/oceangala/auctions.html
The San Diego Coastkeeper protects the region's bays, beaches, watersheds, and ocean for the people and wildlife that depend on them. For the second straight year, the Ocean Gala will feature its signature Going Green Live Auction featuring eco-friendly items and outdoor experiences. The Going Green Live Auction will be conducted by professional auctioneers Charles Dreyer and Bill Menish, who have combined to raise tens of millions of dollars for local and national charities.

What a generous thing to do for a great cause. This was such a departure from what I'm used to seeing I had to do a double take on your avatar to confirm it was you. I love it!

Thanks for getting involved Tony,

The painterly strokes and use of color have me standing there, enjoying this scene.

Hi Sheila,

It is a bit different from the kind of work I do now-a-days. I used to paint the waterways when I was in school and doing lots of plein-air. In this piece, the PCH with the car's headlights is the only sign of civilization. I loved that light gleaming off the water when I saw this scene. Glad you like it!

That's a beauty. I read your critique on billspainting about keeping the center of interest. It was right on. I love night scenes.
