I love the look of loose watercolor painting but find it a challenge as it does not come naturally to me. However, when reviewing vacation photos I knew this one would be a perfect candidate for a loose style and a #NatureDoodlewash. This is my husband, Jerry, walking along the surf one peaceful morning, and I am sure he was diligently looking for shark teeth. We have a friendly family competition to see who can find the largest one each year, and this year Jerry won the bragging rights.
This NC beach is generally uncrowded and serene, and looking at this painting reminds me what a restful place it is. In the lyrics of James Taylor, “I’m goin’ to Carolina in my mind.”
