Painting From Plein Air Sketches

One weekend spent at a beach resort, I got the chance to sketch plein air. The difference here is the intention in my head. I’m making a sketch. This time I wanted to paint at home using only the sketches as reference, no photos because photos can get in the way.

Half past six AM, I thought I didn’t need the hat, but here the hot sun beating down on me
Sun-dappled at the poolside
I got sand in my watercolor box…

Paintings made in the studio/home:

I made the sky less blue
The massage hut. Many palm trees have been deleted out from the picture.

Have a great day
