It looks like somewhere on the west coast, maybe Pt. Reyes?

How do you know if this isn't one of those pictures that 25 different so called artist do? Thoses generally have no reference to anything, they are just sketched from imagination and then painted. Each artist is really good at one thing and that's the part they add. No artist works on the painting for more than 10 - 15 minutes.

Bay of Biscay, France. Very close to Biarritz, before it was developed.

I was leaning that way, too. NorCal or Oregon coast. I was looking closely at the trees and they look like redwoods, but "subject to artistic interpretation," they could be any type of conifer.
