As some of you may remember, one of the reasons I went to visit my sister was to paint. Here is a pictorial progression of my seascape. The reference photo that I used was from the Wet Canvas website. I am having so much fun using Pan Pastels that my other pastels are crying. Don't worry little stick buddies, I'll get back to you soon.
Phase 1- I work from back to front...
Phase 1 A - This shows me applying the pastel with a sponge
Phase 2 shows the progress
We had a great time painting, and while I still have some great vacation pictures, I thought I would toss in some art. I am going to work on another seascape today, from a photo that I took at Carlsbad Beach.
It is rainy here today and while I like rainy days, it is a bit more difficult to become motivated. We'll see how things go.
I did sign up for a second set of swimming lessons and am currently practicing kicking with my legs and not just my feet. Whew, playing in the pool is fun, but practicing technique is hard work. Well, you know what they say about practice.
I guess that's it for today. I hope you enjoy the photos of my progress on this beach scene. Tune in later for another one. Take care and enjoy today.
