This is one of the little beaches on Tomales Bay in Marin County, CA. It's not my usual color scheme. I was trying out something different after a demonstration in class on how to paint sand by first putting down raw sienna, then over-glazing with a mix of pale gray made with a mix of cerulean blue and vermilion. Since the sky took up three quarters of the painting, I felt it had to have some drama in it. I think this ended up being too much sky and not enough beach. Need to try it again.
