Similar to the sand dune paintings I have been painting in oil, this Beach Day is done in watercolor. This original painting focuses on the shrubs, grass and small trees found along the beach. Closer to the water is a child and parent enjoying a beach day. My process is to use a variety of greens and yellows to make an interesting shape for the sand dune foliage. This process also includes wet into wet, dry into wet and wet onto dry techniques for texture and interest.
