Day 137

Buckets, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

I know I'll be painting subjects that are new to me at the workshop I'm taking next week, so I decided to continue my warm up with another beach scene, this time outside of my comfort zone (no dogs!) Like yesterday, this too was painted from a Wet Canvas reference image library photo, since I don't have any photos like this of my own yet. I was drawn to the primary colors of the buckets and blue suit, and the action of the girls. I think the water looks a little better in this one than in yesterdays.


  1. The girl in shadow is simply wonderful.

    1. Shirley, thank you so much! I've really been working on values in shadow lately, glad it's paying off.
