Another Big Sky Painting and a Visit to the Beach

BEACH DUNES
Watercolor 8x10

Beach Dunes is another one of my 'Big Sky' paintings. The sky makes up the majority of the composition with big fluffy clouds. I painted the sky using several shades of blue - ultra marine, manganese and a little pthalo blue - and then used a paper towel to lift back some white areas. When it was dry I  came back in to add some shadows and definition.
Last month we visited our kids in Charleston, SC where our oldest daughter Laura - on the right - and her husband Eric live. Our middle daughter Lisa - on the left  - and out son Scott were also able to be there for the week. We spent several fun days at the beach enjoying the sun, sand and surf!
