this is my least favorite beach painting. the light shifted so suddenly. i left it to check out what we thought was a seal (was a log in the ocean), and then came back to accidentally dump sand all over the canvas (to then scrape half of it down). it feels really incomplete, but not a loss.
it was a learning experience to work quickly and confidently and not to wander off too long when the shadows, tides, and light conditions will change moment to moment.
