'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke||
It's been awhile since I've done beach type scenes and forgot how much fun they are - and really how forgiving....more water, more paint, repeat as often as necessary! I did the underpainting on the sand, and on the rocks, too - with the addition of some rice papers to give more texture. The dam view from the boat needs lots more color, but I like where it's going. The Great Dunes of Savannah are ready for some grass and sand - will do negative painting for the grasses. And the Shore of Jekyll Island needs another layer of color on the water, and then I'll have fun playing with the rocks. These are so much faster than what I normally paint and honestly, a nice break!
