These two are about 8x12", WSO on unstretched canvas. Just playing in the studio from photos to get a better feel for oils before going plein air this weekend with them. C&C always welcome. Thanks.

Hank, Great paintings! The Sand in the first looks great, wonderful water and love the sky. My only nit would be at the horizon IMO the transition from sky to water should be lest distinct. The portrait is lovely the only thing IMO is missing is just a tad of yellow in the forehead area. I love the way you rendered the hair. Great form.

Excellent! Love the beach scene.
Can't wait to see your plein air paintings (and how you like (or don't like) the wm oils for plein air.
