The Coastguard's Lawn

This painting took various forms before I could get it right. After quite a few attempts to do a conventional plein air from this elevated spot overlooking Point Vicente Lighthouse in Palos Verdes, I left the lighthouse out completely and created a composition about the remaining contrast of the manicured coastguard property set amid nature's wilderness.
