'Sunlit Marsh'. 5x7. Pastel
We've waited all week for a sunny day. I love moody clouds and drama but a day of warm sunshine would be nice. We were greeted by a peaceful and beautiful sunrise which soon gave way to a clear blue sky. It was supposed to be our Charleston gallery day but with rainodn the way we decided we needed to stay on the beach and enjoy the sun. I decided to walk down to the bend in the creek to paint.
It was the perfect spot to paint. A light breeze with the distant sound of waves along with the chatter of birds. I painted four studies here before heading back to the cottage for lunch. Here are some of my paintings.
'Monarchs Passing Through'. 5x7. Pastel
'At the Bend'. 6x8. Pastel
This afternoon we took it easy on the deck. We fed t he birds and laughed at their antics. I read some. Oh and I cleaned my pastels in the sand. It works great! We are gearing up for a great sunset. The clouds are building so hopefully we'll have some good color in the sky. I am planning on painting with my clean pastels so I can't wait!
