Hello Monday (A day at the beach)

With two weeks left until school starts, 4th grade! 2nd grade!, the weather has been great and I have been wanting beach time.  This is our local beach, those of you who follow my blog have seen this point before...I've painted & photographed it a bunch.  It's the beach I can walk to and often walk, run or bike past.
Ahhh...hello beauty

Hello pelicans
Hello sketchbook.  Watercolor pencils at the beach and then filled in with watercolors at home.

Linking up with Lisa


  1. I would love love love to have a beach like this nearby, but alas, they're hard to come by in Kansas. I'm not sure I would ever feel like I could do it justice in a drawing, but if I saw it every day.

    I really really like your "frozen" painting in the post below this one. Such rich colors!

  2. You are SO lucky to leave near the beach! I can smell the salt air. beautiful waves in your drawing.

  3. Wow..this is jealous and you are SO talented!

  4. Beautiful beach and drawing. You have such a peaceful view to enjoy.

  5. Ha - we are also entering 2nd and 4th... started a few weeks ago. Not bad, but I'd rather be on your beautiful beach! I love the shot of the pelicans especially.

  6. Thanks Everyone! We decided to return to the beach on Tuesday and about 1 hour after we left a surfer spotted a Great White Shark not 100 yards from where my kids were swimming and bogey boarding! Yikes!!!

  7. Even though I don't like the sun too much, now I wish I could escape the hot and humid city of Milan and put my feet into the sea... Great work!!

  8. Beautiful photos! I didn't know pelicans fly in formation like that. I'm jealous of your beach. Your paintings are lovely, both this one and the one posted for IF "freeze". You have a great feel for sea colors!

    Thanks for your comment on the little mantra illustration on my blog. If you do print it, I hope it works for you like it does for me! :)
