Here Comes the Fog, Oil on Panel, 5x7"

Here Comes the Fog, Oil on Panel, 5x7"

“Here Comes the Fog” is an all too common saying around here. It can be a hot, sunny day like this one at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica. Then the fog comes rolling in, the sun disappears, and you need your jacket instead of your bathing suit. It was one of the first things I learned when I moved to the Bay Area: never leave home without a jacket, no matter what. (Painting available here).

Watercolor & Gouache preliminary study

Watercolor & Gouache preliminary study

This was a quick study in my sketchbook from the photo I took when I visited the beach in June. I used watercolor and gouache to ease back into that day at the beach.

  1. Love the painting and the sketch! You’re inspiring me to try oils again….

    Funny about those local expressions. Here we say, “The mountain is out!” when we can see Mt. Rainier….and fog is usually a morning event in the summer, something that goes away as the day progresses….
