Next paintings started. This is another painting from my trip to Natural Bridges beach in Santa Cruz. So many wonderful things there to paint.
This one is of people just doing their thing on the beach.
The walking girl is mostly done except for her face and some adjustments here and there. I love the looseness of the strokes and I especially love her lanky pre teen stride across the sand. I hate seeing kids in bikinis but I like the color and shadows on her skin so much that I decided to paint her she was dressed that day. I’d like to thank her for wearing those nice red shorts. I like her size relative to the size of the canvas.
That little girl in front is digging in the sand and eating a sandwich.
