9X12 watercolor on 140 lb. cold press
More beach watercoloring- I can't seem to help it with our winter staying in the 60's and 70's. It just feels like summer! I walk 3-4 miles by the beach every morning and have many photos to paint from. I feel like I need to paint something different, but this is what motivates me these days. Soon, I will move on (at least in temporary spurts) and mix in other painting subjects. I am going to take my artistic motivation wherever I can get it- and these days, it is the beach! These sand dollars were really fun for me to paint since I really get caught up in the tiny details- that explains all the grains of sand I added. The main challenge for me was to use a light hand to shade these sand dollars- to keep them light in color, but not completely white.
