Crystal Cove- Scotty's Cove by Desiree


With the heat threating to melt us in the valley at 109 degrees we decided to escape to the ocean. I dragged my new easel and paints and pastels down the hillside to the beach. At 74 degrees I was able to relax and enjoy the day, the weather was perfect and the sound of the waves and the people milling about was so wonderful. It made me wonder why I don't do this more often! We ended up at Crystal Cove a State beach open to all. Beautiful rocks, tide pools and cliffs makes it a favorite for artists in the area.

  1. I love that place. I have photographed and painted the area when we lived there. It's right before you go into Laguna Beach. Wonderful painting.
