Beach Path View, 5x7 gouache paint on watercolor paper, seascape


I spent an afternoon painting on location at Harkness Park in Waterford, CT. Plein air painting can be rewarding but it can have it’s drawbacks. I wasn’t planning on painting too long unless I found shade to setup. This seascape was so nice I stood in the hot sun to capture this beach path view scene.

I often start with watercolor paint when I plan on using the opaque gouache paint. Sometimes I leave areas of the transparent layers to contrast with the thicker opaque layers, this can add nice depth to a painting.

Leave areas untouched of transparent paint underneath the heavier opaque brushstrokes. This can create depth and interest to a painting.
