Beach Roses Painting

'The Sweet Scent of Summer' 8x10 pastel
I can smell the sweet scent of the Nantucket Beach roses mixed with the fresh salty air. The dunes around the island were covered in blooms adding color to the soft greens of the grasses. I was anxious to paint them but the roses gave me fits! had the right colors...a bright pink from my new Richeson set, but I didn't like my arrangment of flowers. I brushed them out at least three times and had to finally take out some fixative. But in the end I feel like I captured the day I wandered around the dunes of Jetties Beach.
