It was very overcast and quiet at the beach today.
The sky, sand, and water were all very muted
(which made the bright colors even brighter!)
I am usually attracted to strongly sunlit subjects,
so this was a challenge.
I decided to approach it as a high key, pattern painting.
(See PKR's DVD's)
These gals were about 200 yards away from my set up,
so I had no choice but to squint and paint what I could see.
That sure helps you simplify!
(I may get rid of the swimmer who looks like a starfish.
I like him but he's distracting?)
