Small works

While working on a large commission, I'm taking breaks to do a few small pieces for an upcoming small works show I'm entering.
This one was done in reverse of the usual plein air to studio progression of small location work to larger studio painting. A few years ago I did a 12" x 16" plein air painting of this scene in Laguna Beach. I was never quite happy with it, so here is a cropped-in, smaller version I just finished. Maybe I'll get to a big version someday too.
Laguna view, oil, 6" x 6"

Nice composition (didn't see the first version but the revisit is splendid) and your well-placed negative shapes are so important too. Yum.
