Monterey Bay - the second try
This is my impression of Monterey Bay.
A quaint, picturesque, sea side town on the Pacific Coast, south of San Franscisco.
I have painted this painting twice, both in Oil Pastels.
I did the first one (below right) after my visit to Monterey in late 2005. I was more satisfied with the waters (esp in the foreground, right hand corner) in this one.
But I like the second try (above right) more because of how I managed the proportions and the depth.
I painted the second in June 2006 as a gift for my sister-in-law.
