Beach Readers

Beach Readers, 6x6" oil, ©Diane Mannion

1/8/2017

#8 of 30/30.

Reference definitely not taken today!  38 degrees down here in sunny south Florida.  This couple would have been bundled in sweatshirts with hoodies up.  

I liked how one reader had an old fashioned book and the other, an e-reader.  Scene took place on Manasota Key Beach a few months ago.
Underpainting with transparent red iron oxide.

Lovely narrative painting, Diane, and thank you for sharing the underpainting process!

Thank you, Laurelle Cidoncha! Nice to know my showing my underpaintings as part of the painting process may be useful. I love teaching but have been too busy painting for a gallery, sharing information on my blog is as close as I can get right now. Happy painting! Diane
