Melissa at the Beach
I have been under the weather, but feeling better today, I asked on Facebook what I should paint. Melissa said “Beach!” I am not fond of painting beach scenes. Vast open spaces of sand and water. But luckily I had already taken some resource photos of the people on the beach.
This painting required that I do a sketch and then quickly paint it. I was surprised, however, how long I had been sitting and painting this scene. Ordinarily, I’d have been huffing and puffing to get it done, but since I was waiting for a donation pickup (and yes, it took all day for them to come), I managed to finish it without my going astray.
