shades of white?
It is incredibly warm and rainy here but I just had to go out and paint. I went to Surfer's Beach near Newport, RI. Oddly, it was crowded and the waves were huge. I did a car sketch attempting to make a realistic color study without using so much white..........it was pretty impossible and I had to keep adding white. If I had been able to get out of the car or turn the wipers off I might have been able to see it better. I did manage to get a walk in........seconds before I got back to the car, it started pouring. The waves were really neat but I had forgotten my camera, too bad.
