the series is starting to take hold on me. when i first start these beach figures they are very difficult but the more i do the easier they are to do.

what i'm after is to show all the nuances of color in the people on the beach. there are areas of their bodies that can pick up reflected light from the sand, some from the sky, and some from things bouncing into the shadow. every plane is a different color. the fun is seeing how many you can see and render. and i want it to have a sculptural, simplistic, fun and spontaneous look about them at the same time tho'. thats why i keep doing these things. i'm going to get it exactly right one day. just wasnt today or probably wont be tomorrow or the next day either. maybe someday before i'm too old to paint anymore!

I'm enjoying watching the progress on these, very fun. Are you painting this from photos or life? I'm trying to figure out what to do when I move away from a town overflowing with life drawing studios here!
