This painting is from a photo reference I requested from my friend Joan Keating (love supporting friends!). There is a beautiful beach with a wonderful mix of clay, rocks, sea glass and shells near her summer home. As per my request she went out a took some great photos having no idea what I really wanted. This painting is in the Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum & Art Gallery Ribbon Fair watercolour category from July 6 until August 5. My goal was to have a painting in every category that I qualify for, I made all but one (next year hopefully I will make my goal).
