Diane Mannion, 37 Monday Morning Surf Study, 8x10" o/c
Met a few artists on the beach this chilly (37 degrees and also the 37th painting this year) SW Florida morning for a plein air session. Didn't take long for the jackets to come off though, by 10am the tourists were walking on the beach in bathing suits. The water was gorgeous but the darn stuff doesn't hold still! Took photos and thought I'd touch this up in the studio... but decided to leave it 100% plein air. It's simply a study and I can't wait to do more!
