I went to a workshop a couple of weeks ago and am just now getting around to posting. This is along the California coast and though I was excited about the fog, that sentiment wasn't shared by most of my colleagues. I think it is mostly because I don't get to see that sort of thing very often where I live and I like the mystery that fog creates.
Mike Barr, a wonderful Australian painter, had taken a lovely coastal painting of his, and cropped it to make a better composition. I thought that was a fabulous idea and I used that technique on my piece.
