I live less than a mile from this spot - Gay Fish Co. - and routinely paint the boats and water but have never parked across the street and painted this view before. ....for some reason, it appealed to me this morning. I had to finish it back in the studio because the bugs were fierce! I was wearing this little bug repellant device (a fan sort of) and covered the rest of myself with "OFF deep woods" but they were still driving me crazy by flying into my face.
This 20x16" is based on a photo of a little girl I took years ago.......I did a square format painting (which sold) of her on sand but decided to try her again with some ocean around her. It's just too hot to leave the studio after noontime.
