Pitcher’s work is quintessentially California. A native of the Santa Barbara area, the artist exemplifies the beach culture so prevalent in the region. Through his images of the Santa Barbara beaches and communities, the landscapes of the Central Coast, as well as his surfboard images, the artist has created a distinctive style which resonates with the feeling and culture of Southern California.

This work shows a coastal cliff with a dramatic raking afternoon light. The work is painted on paper and the surface of the work has oil mixed with sand to add a rough texture and, in some light, a shimmering quality to further accentuate the light effect.
