To the Beach

The days of sun and sand are nearly over, and I've relished every moment. It has been a joy capturing the moods of this gulf coast water, ever trying to catch those moments in oil.  I truly see the need for cerulean blue, where I've never used it before.  All these dreamy sun washed colors have been so fun to explore!   Alreadt looking forward to returning and studying this coastline again!  Painting number 2618 in 2618 days.

  2. You've coughed the colors perfectly. Your wonderful "briefcase" lets us compare the beach and your gorgeous painting.
    Love it 😍

    1. Thanks! I do most of my mixing on the panel, not the palette. I think it helps me keep the colors fresh while comparing them with my scene as I work.

  3. Very clever positioning, Tammie. Its a beautiful painting! Your colors are always so perfect, mine are all due to luck, or not! Color is not my strong suit. I also love your horse painting!
