Today was not a particularly dynamic day but this afternoon I took my boys for a surf and also went out although the sea was still a bit wild from the storm we have just had. I had couple of good waves. Then I got out and packed my stuff away and sat on the dune and painted the mountains across the bay. It was rather chilly and I had just got going when the sun went down. I started the red peaks and when I looked up they were blue grey. This was a bit of a rushed painting. I wanted to show how the leaves on the seaward side of the bushes were all burned brown from the saltwater spray coming off the waves in the storm.
I cropped the picture of the painting to show the tiny pieces of masking tape I managed to tear off my paint box which I used to stick the watercolour paper to my sketch book because I did not have my usual kit with me. I really would like to get more organised. Maybe tomorrow I will have another chance there.
