I went out to paint when the edge of Sandy was going by, it was just windy. Had a nice walk on the beach too.
I like to start off with a fast sketch before I do the painting to warm up and catch any compositional problems. The wind was blowing strong and it looked like rain so I parked under a pavilion at Fredrick Douglas park on the beach. I got my sketch finished and the rain started coming down, well not down really more like across, it was blowing pretty horizontal. Got soaked on the way to the car which was about 20 feet away.
Last night I pulled out my sketch and made the painting below from it, its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite. To purchase, just click the Paypal button below.
