Santa Monica Beach Plein Air Painting

Painting by Oscar Will of Santa Monica beach sun setting

The Santa Monica Beach Pier was very crowded this Sunday – the result of a confluence of events: St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Break, mid 80s Fahrenheit inland, and the first weekend in a while it didn’t rain.

It didn’t stop me from getting in a quick Plein air painting of the beach crowds waiting for the sunset.

Road blocked for Art Festival

Painting of Downtown Burbank Palm Ave by Oscar Will willtopaint.com

Catching up on some posts – This is an update of my painting from last year’s Burbank Arts Festival, returning May 18th and 19th in 2019. This is the view looking north up Palm Avenue from the booth I was painting from. There were a ton of people ebbing and flowing through the street but in the end I decided to leave a few vehicles to show there were some signs of life.
