We will be painting the sunset at Carmel-by-the-Sea's white sand beach overlooking Carmel Bay. You simply show up and we will have an easel for you with water-based gouache or oil paint, and brushes. A 6x9" panel will be provided. Be sure to bring a hat! You will be greeted by Rich Brimer, an experienced plein air artist. He has a studio in Carmel and plenty of painting tips. You begin by making a sketch and depending on the beautiful late afternoon skies you mix and select your colors. Gouache is a quick drying paint will allow you to take your painting of one of the world's most beautiful beaches home with you, or it can be shipped to you for an additional fee. Often times dolphins can be seen playing in the waters along Carmel Beach, while people stroll hand in hand. The sand is pure white & where the skies meet the sea— it magically includes the setting sun. It takes around 90 minutes to make a painting. Meeting times (sunset) vary each month. On occasion a whale may spout for our painters—if we are really lucky! Some of the best sunsets are in the fall & winter around the Monterey Peninsula. Paintings are an epic reminder of your experience here. See you soon
