Morro Rock is pretty amazing. It’s a gigantic volcanic plug in Morro Bay. This big monolith dominates the town of Morro Bay and is just referred to as “The Rock”, which prompted my kids to call it Dwayne Johnson. I had to look him up.
One morning, I painted that rock over and over and over. Here’s what I ended up with.
My first sketch is often the kitchen sink version.
Here are more, but I’m not sure anymore what order I painted them in.
It’s always fun to do multiple takes on a subject. As you see it more and more clearly, you fuss around less. I think I could spend a few days at Morro Bay, switching angles and media and drawing and redrawing Dwayne Johnson.
