Oil 12"x16". This is my first plein air painting this year. Darrell Anderson, wonderful painter and friend, and I decided to ignore the cold and go to the beach to paint. He spent a very few minutes deciding what to paint and away he went. I, on the other hand, walked round in circles, couldn't find any inspiration and decided Darrell was it. Once I had started, of course, it was fun and exciting. You can't tell from the photograph but the paint is very thick and mainly applied with a palette knife. Could do with some more dabs here and there, but I will wait until the paint is dry.
