Santa Barbara with Marcia Burtt - January 2011

Marcia Burtt plein air painting at Goleta Beach.
I attended Marcia's January 2011 plein air painting workshop in Santa Barbara California. Here is her website:
Marcia's workshop was excellent. She demonstrated her clear colorful painting style every morning and then she personally helped each of us as we painted all day long. We worked from 8:30 am to 5pm every day. Except for Tuesday when we stayed till 6:30pm to paint the rising full moon.

Brooks plein air painting at Goleta Beach California.
Here are a few of my paintings from Santa Barbara.

This is Cabrillo Drive along the Santa Barbara waterfront.

Goleta Beach has many interesting rocks.

This painter stands alone on Goleta Beach.

Goleta Slough runs behind Goleta Park.

The view across from Goleta Park is stunning.

Yucca grow among the rocks at Goleta Park.

Here is a photo of the three palms next to the excellent restaurant in Goleta Park.

Here is my painting of this scene. I call it the "three sisters".

The last day of class I took off early to paint the Harbor House Inn where Peggie and I stayed.

This is a photo of the Harbor House (wonderful place to stay).

Here is my painting of the Harbor House.
