Painting at Manasota Beach
Painted with the wonderful Englewood Plein Air Group yesterday! Good thing we arrived early though, parking lots filled up fast and this uncrowded beach became packed with snowbirds. The more snow up north, the more snowbirds we get down here.

My palette, thumbnail sketch and painting
One of my favorite marine artists, Roos Schuring suggests putting paint on with a palette knife and then pushing it around with brushes. I enjoyed experimenting with her technique in this painting.
