Port Aransas, Texas

Painted from an old photo. This is a small (7"x10") watercolor on Arches 140 CP. A typical gulf scene of a hot Texas summer beach.

This was an exercise in painting random people in various poses without any detail to speak of. The little person in red on the left was just a white accidental shape that looked like a child bent over in the sand. Another example of letting the painting have a hand in the piece. It's a lot like looking at clouds as a child an finding all sorts of things. It is amazing how many opportunities you can find within to enhance a painting. And they tend to have more expression and life than if you had planned them.
