The Needles Cannon Beach Oregon Pastel Painting

Oregon Pastel Painting, The Needles at Cannon Beach sunset ocean

Pastel Cannon Beach, Oregon at sunset... this time it isn't Haystack Rock, but its companions, called The Needles. It's great to get just the right angle so the sun sets between them. As is often the case, there were people present but I elected to leave them out. This painting is not about them...

There are more dynamics in the painting than my digital camera was able to read; but that's kind of normal. This is a problem that often brings me much frustration.
