Acrylic on Canvas Board

Spooky moody day at the beach.

Now, not only was there no shade, and constantly shifting lighting conditions, but the wind really picked up and the sand went everywhere – in the paint, under my paper palette, in my face. 

What surprised me most was a bunch of Dutch tourists came by to look at what I was doing, nodded and smiled, and  then decided to plop down right in the foreground. I mean, they saw what I was painting, and with the whole deserted beachfront they just had to sit there. Apparently I chose not to paint them.
