The Cove, landscape/seascape

The Cove, watercolor, 14x20" (35x50cm.) Available. I painted this watercolor plein-air, standing near La Mano Masks in La Jolla, California, a few days ago. La Jolla Cove is a beautiful place in Southern California, near San Diego.
According to Ian Roberts, it's important to engage both horizontal and vertical lines of force. Our goal--he says--is "to orchestrate engagement, and have: strong value masses, subtle color intensities and harmonies, edge quality, and great drawing." Have I done all that in this painting? I'm not sure. You be the judge.
