Swami’s Beach – A Winter Watercolor - Finished

Swami's on a Calm Winter Day  -  11" X 14"  watercolor
This Watercolor painting of Swami’s Beach is from early December, looking toward the rocky point just north of the lifeguard stationin the quaint seaside town of Encinitas, California. It’s a grey overcast day and a steady stream of surfers come and go from morning ‘til evening.

I think I’ll do another from this spot because this painting doesn’t really show the waves…and that’s important to surfers!  A tourist would like this view.

Here’s a link to Swami’s Surfing Association for more information and listen to a little surfing music on their home page!   http://www.swamissurfingassociation.org

Swami’s Beach – A Winter Watercolor in Progress

I’m doing a watercolor painting of Swami’s Reef.  My husband has been wanting me to do a watercolor series of surfing spots in Southern California.
