I've been taking my paints with me to the beach a lot lately. I can paint while sitting under the comfort of the umbrella. I worked on this larger painting back in the studio using my sketch as a reference. It is always fun to sketch and observe the different people at the beach. When painting people I try not to get too much detail in the faces at such a small size. As they get further back in the distance, the smaller and less detailed they become. The different colors and sizes of umbrellas make the painting fun to view and more interesting. Are you ready for the beach?
