Here’s a couple on the beach, drinking from red solo cups, enjoying the evening. It wasn’t until I was halfway through this painting that I realized the part of this scene that I loved the most was the play of light on the young man’s back. I like backs.
Here’s today’s painting of mom and baby girl in the surf. I got a lot closer to them for this version, which satisfied my need to paint them bigger without using a larger piece of paper since I had only white Wallis Professional in 5×7″ size. It’s the last piece of paper from the sample pack I bought a couple weeks ago. I’m sad that it’s all used up, but very happy to have tried out so many different surfaces. I’ve learned a lot and may never go back to plain Canson mi tentes again. My next experiment will be using six different grits of UArt paper.
I have some news on the show at the Limelight Theatre, too, but I’ll share it in a later post. I’m still organizing all the things I learned with that event.
And one more thing, my friend Liz and I are going to be having a Yart Sale (that’s yard and art combined, fyi) on November 22, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. We are both prolific artists and we’re up to our eyeballs in art, which is good for you because we need to sell it to make room for more art! I’ll post details later, so stay tuned.
