Hi Friends! It’s good to participate again in Draw A Bird celebrations on the 8th of each month.
Admittedly, I painted this fellow at the end of last year but never had time to write a post for him. It was one of my more successful attempts to paint loosely, which I find challenging. Thanks for stopping by and stay well!
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.
Carolina Beach Combing
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.”
