A View Across

Last week I was able to get to the beach a few times. This was painted from Smith Point on Fire Island facing toward the mainland right near the bridge. This is 5 x 7.


  1. Wow....a beautiful watercolor Joan!!! Such a nice scene....

  2. Just lovely. I love the colors you use.. Went to see your Paris paintings. WOW. I wish I could paint in watercolors as well as you. I am a trained Oil painter which is easier for me then watercolors and only have been using watercolors for sketching in the past year..and since we have no good art store I am using cheap kid paints.

  3. Oh I do so love the beach and sandy areas with sea grasses growing. Beautiful piece, Joan!!

  4. Thanks, Hilda!

    Chris - Thank you!!! I'm glad you got to see the ones I did en plein air while I was there. Like anything art related working with the better materials makes a difference.

    Celia - Thank you.

    Sherry - I love beaches as you can tell. Thanks so much!

  5. Really lovely beach scene, and what a lovely clear day
