Ventura Beach work in process

"Ventura Beach" is a studio painting from a photo I took last summer. It has been way too rainy to go out and paint in the rain so I am doing coastal paintings in the studio. I much prefer painting from direct observation but the atmosphere of this coastal summer fog is a lot like the weather we are having now.
This may not be finished, I am putting it aside for a week or two to make sure.
I am missing summer right now and have wanted to paint one of the iconic life guard stations for a long time.
