Slightly cloudy, with a forecast of light rain and good times.
Interesting subject + Erin + easel = paradise.
Initially, I went for the vertical layout (blue); but decided on the far more logical landscape format.
Exploring the picture with notes, two beers in.
Nearly time to add the paint.
Getting the paint on with a patchy coat of facial hair.
Colorizing the waves and and graffiti.
A step back to compare.
Adding some of the midtones.
The summer of salmon inexplicably continues.
And the fourth beer hath been cracked open.
Filling in the entire scene, as the sun tricks me into believing I won’t get sun burned through the clouds.
When the beers are gone and your ride arrives, it is time to fold up the easel.
It was a terrific day on Big Beach, HI.
