Solana Beach (SD100-28)
This is near the crossroads between Lomas Santa Fe and Old Highway 101 in the coastal community of Solana Beach.
It is getting dark. Looking down the street leading to Fletcher Cove, I see everything silhouetted against the pink/orange sky. I like the moodiness of this time of the day and certainly like painting into the light which is best done around this time.
However, our eyes have a hard time adjusting to blinding light and we may not actually see what's hidden in the shadows. There is mystery there. To paint or not to paint that mystery, that's the question when it comes to painting into the light.
