At the Beach

Even though it has been really cold and we still have a lot of snow on the ground, I had that urge to go down by the beach. First I painted a bit of the dunes with some fencing. Of course there were a few piles of snow up against the fencing and on the dunes. It really mixes in with the sand so you can't tell where one ends and the other starts.

Then I did a painting of some closer beach grasses with the touches of snow between the clusters of grass. I tried to do this one holding the tip of the brush handle to make looser marks.


  1. Now these are scenes I never see in these parts -- snow on the beach! Seriously! Even if it snows in town, it's too warm by the shore. You've made it look lovely!


  2. I would so love to live near the sea. It totally captivates the wanderer in me...its mystery and its movements...its secrets and its treasures. I love that you've given the invitation with these seaside pieces, Joan. They are beautiful!

  3. Tina, thanks! Here if we get snow we get it everywhere. lol

    Sherry, it is captivating, but a little chilly this time of year. Thanks.

  4. I really love how you are composing your landscapes Joan! Great work on the grass!!

  5. You did a great job on these beach scenes, Love them.
