Offshore Breeze, sketchbook watercolor
Same Spot One Week Later
One brave sunbather (who appears in my Offshore Breeze sketch above)
Stood in the shade by the parking lot in the same spot as last week. Offshore Breeze is a compressed view, move palm trees closer. It's also full color, while Venice Sketch is a limited three color palette.
Red tide still lingers, water still brownish. A group of tourists planted a blue umbrella and settled down, they only lasted about twenty minutes. The area around Venice pier this time of year is usually crowded with beach people. Still sad.
My painting buddy and I stayed near the parking lot on a boardwalk. Later that day I received an email from her. After several trips taking painting gear back to her car, she had forgotten to take her painting which was left leaning against a railing. Several hours later, she rushed back and found it still there! Because there are not many people around, red tide saved the day. She thought no one liked it, but it's a sweet little painting anyone would have been happy to find.
