'A Promising Day'. 5x7. Plein air pastel
We changed bedrooms this year. Last year I looked out on the marsh. This year I have the ocean view. I was lulled to sleep by the sound of the crashing surf just outside my window. Heaven. We woke to a cloudy and moody sky but it was warm. So after breakfast I set up my new Gogh box on the screened porch and painted the view. The sun was starting to break through promising a good day.
'Afternoon Surf'. 5x7. Plein air pastel
I love my new Gogh box! I'll be doing a full review soon but it was so easy to set up and paint at a moments notice. So after lunch I set up again and painted the same ocean view. The sun was out and it was quite windy. The surf was up!
Here is my Gogh box in action out on our porch. I painted two more small studies of the dunes next to the porch. I didn't even have to move! We decided that it was wine time so I finished my painting, took photos and put away my box so I could join my friends.
It's a tough job but someone's got to do it! Tomorrow I will paint the marsh!
