This was painted from photo reference taken at Pt. Loma National Monument, just below the light house. Tide pools galore when the water is out and many cliffs to explore and get lost in. This particular area is a short distance past the tide pools and requires a short hike which starts above the cliffs and zig zags steeply to get to these beauties. A risky trek to take because one false step could spell danger. I've done some plein air studies there also which will eventually become studio paintings.
