This beach scene was painted for this months challenge on Wetcanvas, seemed a great way to get started on warmer subjects as right about now many are a little tired of freezing cold temperatures and winter white-outs.
I have no earlier experience painting people or clothes, so I thought this scene would give me an opportunity to try my hand at both subjects and get a feel for painting surf again with oil pastels. Oh my it was interesting to say the least, after a few scrapes and re-starts here is my attempt . . . calling this oil pastel, Girls at Beach (8×10 – on a gesso prepared hardboard).
Here is a little seascape to begin turning our attention to lazy summer months ~
