Watercolor landscape painting Shore Acres State Park, Oregon by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Shore Acres Study

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 7.5″h x 13.75″w, 2012.

This small watercolor was painted plein-air July 14, 2012, at Shore Acres State Park near Coos Bay, Oregon. This was part of the Coos Art Museums’ Plein-air Paint Out in conjunction with their 19th Annual Maritime Exhibition of which I had three paintings juried into. It was an overcast day, but painting on location was pleasant though the lighting was flat. Since I was painting within fifteen feet of a cliff, many sea birds of all types soared so close to me. It was a real treat. The seas were calm, so the crashing surf was mild but beautiful. The painting was drawn and painted within three hours from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
