This painting was the result of a monthly project painting over at WatercolorWorkshop (a Yahoo group). I began really pale and added the seagulls and a bit more pinks later.
The photos of the beach scene with birds and people were shared by Doris Glovier for us to use. The photos actually came from the WetCanvas Image Reference Library and was taken by LateBloomer.
Doris cropped the photo several ways, offering us different views. In all of them, I saw this heart in the sand.
I hope you had a Happy Father's Day and will have a Happy First Day of Summer (in the northern hemisphere)!
