This little boy was searching for fossil shark's teeth, a major beach activity from Venice to Palm Island. Have relatives visiting so was unable to paint yesterday but able to take lots of photographs. I often aim the camera at my husband but am actually snapping photos of something else, in this case, the boy. People get really self-conscious when a camera is aimed in their direction. My long distance camera can take a portrait shot of someone half a mile down the beach. I changed every color of the outfit the boy was wearing. Really love the position of the figure and the hat. Also moved him a lot closer to the waters edge. Plenty of material here to do a larger painting.
