Mother and Child

This is 4 x 6 and was done the other day at the beach. It is always a challenge to paint the ocean and sky in plein air on a sunny day. The paint dries almost as fast as you put your brush on the paper.

I couldn't agree more about how challenging it is to paint in the sunshine and heat! Love this, Joan ...! And the one below .. I really enjoy revisiting the Island thru your eyes -- thank you!

Mickey - It feels good to be back beaching it. Thanks.

Lin - Glad to take you to the beach!! Thanks so much.

This one is wonderful. The figure, the sea, the way the legs disappear under the water. I would be very daunted by this subject and you have done it so well.

Wendy - Thanks. I like trying to paint people at the beach. It gives me lots of practice on figures. lol
