These are fun to paint especially if the composition lends itself. Of course I do adlib here and there but for the most part the majority of the scenes I paint are about 75% from the view. Love going on a vacation to somewhere you've never been, especially a coastal vacation.

Changed a little bit in this painting by using my palette knife for the most part. Also using some Belgian Linen on this panel added some nice textures.

Oh how I love the beach. Ever since I was a little kid my dad took us on trips to the beach. He and my mom were beach goers in Florida. My dad was an avid scuba diver who did it all in Florida including night dives. On one trip to Florida I got my first taste of the open water snorkeling over the John Pennekamp State Park and saw the statue named Christ of the Abyss. Ever since then I loved the ocean or anything related to it.

Used to kayak in this bay. It can get pretty cold even in the summer. The channel is pretty deep there. One day on a kayak trip I decided to cool off a bit and rolled right into the bay. Yep, it was cold but I was hot. Didn't take long to get back to paddling.

Had some linen laying around since I'm currently waiting for my panels to dry. It made for a nice change in surface texture from my regular gesso primed panels.

Being a kid? Priceless. Imagine for the first time in your life seeing the surf, or how about those eeky looking creatures with claws that scurry around near shore?

Wading into the surf at Galveston Island, Texas on a nice sunny day. This day the sand had started to thicken up and patches could be seen here and there. Paintings like these I like to take the figure as much to the edge as possible so on these types of paintings I do recommend a floater frame.

One of my favorite spots to visit is the south end of Galveston Island. Although not when it has been super dry the sand becomes fluff and easy to get stuck if your not careful. Four wheel drives recommended down here. After a rain though the sand get's packed down some then cars can drive around. Fortunately the Jeep takes me whenever I want to go.
