Twin Beaches – Tide’s Coming In

Twin Beaches – Tide’s Coming in (8″ x 10″ oil on raised panel)

Another of this summer’s plein air paintings …and another beautiful sunny day but I was able to stand in the shade while painting this time. As I was painting, the water was rising and the small puddles gradually joined together. I just had to decide on a moment and stick with that. So I picked a moment when the great blue heron was fishing on the flats.

Twin Beaches – Tide’s Coming In (Setup)

In this setup photo I have just finished the under painting and cleaned up my palette before starting to mix paint for the next layer.

What a lovely day that was! I feel so very fortunate to be able to spend time in this beautiful place celebrating it with my brush.
