I've been watching some YouTube videos lately, some of which are presented by Matthew Palmer. He did one of a beach scene that I decided to try. I am still having trouble getting just the right mix of paint and water.
Overall, I am disappointed in this, but I am quite pleased with the sky. After the sky dried and I was ready to start the water and the craggy bit things began to go a bit downhill. I dropped a wet brush into the craggy part; my color for the water was way too watery, and the sand wouldn't cooperate at all. After letting the whole thing dry, I worked on it some more, but this just made it worse. This is postcard sized and was good practice. Perhaps I will try again today.
I have a conditioning class this morning and think I am having lunch with Nancy and Julia afterward, so I'd best get this day started. I hope you are doing well and that you are finding time for your self and that your muse is standing by.
