Sandy Beach, Vallejo Ca.

(gouache on 7" x 10" watercolor board)

I was looking forward to painting out on the jetty, which offers a closer view of the Carquinez Bridge and waterfront homes but upon my arrival it was fenced off.


Looking across the San Pablo Bay, here's a view of several munition storage bunkers along Mare Island's Heritage Preserve.

The water came out super well! Just that little stroke of purple created this really awesome effect. Not a bad spot to be painting either
