View Full Version : on the beach

If you look at my sketchbook website below, you'll see that I've sketched on the beach a lot, through all sorts of weathers,

There's an ongoing series of canvasses done in the studio from these - well based on these but on the memories of the scene, rather than copying any particular sketch. Degas felt that the memory filtered out and retained only the essential elements.


this is based on memories of a gorgeous warm day painting - one of the plein air sketches done on the day it is based on is the first in my sig line

It's kind of quiet down here.
Nice unusual format - like a silk scroll. I like it.

Vivien - I just love your work! This captures all the elements of a perfect summer day at the beach. I also went through your sketchbooks...impressive. I'll be back to check out more of your work.
