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.

Oxnard Beach Plein Air Painting

Acrylic landscape impressionism painting by Oscar Will of Oxnard State Beach

Last weekend I was at Oxnard Beach and brought along my painting gear. The best view was down where the surf was coming in, so I set up the easel and painted quickly as the waves licked my feet.
