"PACIFIC CLIFFS" New Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"Pacific Cliffs"
Oil on Paper
22" x 30"

Back in April my wife and I took a short trip up the California coast. We were lucky this time of year to get some absolutely wonderful weather, sunshine and no fog. As a result I was able to get some great photo reference for painting and this is my first painting from that trip; I call it "Pacific Cliffs" shot near The Sea Ranch. I've been wanting to try Canson's new Arches Oil Paper which is primed to accept oil so no gesso is required. I quite like it and am pleased with the results. Let me know what you think...
