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.
