CALIFORNIA PACIFIC COAST SEASCAPE PAINTING "First Light" 9x12 Original Acrylic Beach Painting Commissions: Custom Original Painting Order Accepted BUY : Visit Original Paintings Shop BUY : Canvas, Wood and Metal Prints, Pillows, Totes and More! This impressionist beach painting was inspired by the rocky coast of California and the Carmel area along the Pacific Coast Highway. At low tide along the beach, you can often see the beautiful reflections of the rock formations in the water. I put a shimmer of light glistening on the background rocks at sunrise. The splashing waves on the rocks were painted with glowing colors that capture the luminous sky colors. I completed this seascape painting in a master artist workshop.
