Painting at the Beach!
HI, Guess where we went! We went on a family vacation to Rodanthe,NC. It was gorgeous as you can see.
Eleven adults and 5 teenagers and kids too. We enjoyed the beach each day,sitting, soaking up sun, warmth,salt water with waves big enough for kite surfing. Days of relaxing, playing corn hole, playing cards,eating seafood and savoring ice cold drinks on the sand. I painted each day on the beach! We waded in the sound which was ankle deep with clear warm water.
So grab your paint brush and head out,you will love it. I found I prefer hot press for beach scenes on location. I used mostly one brush per painting as I was doing this quickly and I did enjoy trying out my new rounds. Colors of the beach were thalo blue, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre, a touch of sepia.. the white of the paper for the spray and waves. I'll show you more beach paintings and photos soon. Take care and as always it's nice to get home! Diana
