Summer Afternoon

I have recently returned from an exciting week with art friends at the Forgotten Coast Plein Air Event 2015.  It is held each year in the panhandle of Florida from Mexico Beach to Apalachicola.  There are so many picturesque vistas to paint, 30 invited artists to watch, and lots of fun activities...not to mention the great seafood!

I actually did more learning than painting, but wanted to share a beach scene I had time to paint one afternoon.  My goal was to focus on color, hoping to capture the beautiful light and shadow pattern of the dunes.
