this is a very crowded beach in Woods Hole. the third of the day. am enjoying pushing paint around on 9x12's today, which is a little bigger than i usually do. was really doing a lot of 8x10's last week. no rhyme or reason to my size choices. maybe there is a subconcious reason, and i just dont know what it is.
Hit my stride today.... this was the sixth and final of the day.
the key to very edited paintings is speed. put down just the necessary elements to tell the story. believe me! there was alot of stuff in this scene i left out, or i'd still be out there painting!
feel i paint better the faster i go. why tickle something for hours when you can try to boil something down to its barest elements?
