Good Afternoon to everyone. No studio class this week but I am still painting

and heading back to the beach. Quick update. We have found a house in Lakeland, Florida and plan on moving back at the end of July. The time has been great here but the call of the sun,  flip flops and tee shirts is to much in my blood and Sarah also. We have missed Florida. I will have a studio in the new house so that will work out well. Ok this weeks painting. "High TIde"  is a study of a beach somewhere  South of Key West. I am finding that my seascapes have really been my most successful paintings I tried a new panel this week with Golden Ground White and I was happy the way the paintings absorbed the water colors. The brand is DaVinci with a rough gesso surface. I did also use modleing paste and scrubbed the water colors after I varnished the painting. FInal touch was a clear gesso wash and a varnish spray. This painting is 18x24. I am looking forward to doing more seascapes and water paintings once we return to Florida

Enjoy your week  and I will be updating the blog with more paintings but I have to pack starting in July so paintings will be put packed up till we move. Have a blessed week. See ya!
