Painting Daydreams at the Beach in Watercolor

22" x 29"  watercolor 
Watercolor painting on a relaxing day at the beach, feeling gentle breezes under the shelter of a porch with background sounds of sea gulls and ocean waves crashing in the distance. The sandy beach and grass I used as a reference in this painting was actually the edge of Lake Michigan and the porch was of a Bed and Breakfast in historic Old Town, San Diego. My daughter modeled for this painting.

The most interesting section to paint in this scene was the shadows on the side of the house…and of coarse my daughter. I love putting people in my paintings.
