"Painting is an island whose shores I have skirted." --Chardin
These are both gorgeous but there is something about the bottom one that really appeals to me - maybe it’s just not the usual pathway painting to the beach that does it. Love your style and light touch with the colors, and I could look at one of your beach/dune paintings every day. Do you do them plein air or take lots of photos and then go in and paint them?
Thank you, Rhonda. These, and yesterday's, I painted sitting in my beach chair on site. I try to keep the on-location ones smaller and faster. Though I have been known to overwork them!
great little beach scenes 😀 the added gulls add some nice movement to the top one 😀
Thanks, Jennifer. It was low tide and there were many dozens of noisy and active laughing gulls. They added great atmosphere!
