Digging the Beach

6x8" oil on masonite
Another oil painting of children at the beach. I just cant seem to stop. This one I really like because it is painterly and I like the colors. And its got one of those great shadows I just love to paint. Speaking of colors, my 'go-to' colors are naples yellow, cerulean blue,french ultra marine and cad red light. I paint with them most often. Maybe tomorrow I should try a different palette and subject matter, maybe not :-).
So what are your favorite colors to paint with? Maybe I'll get inspired to try something new.

Love this one... and love your postcards, and the whole spirit of generosity that they imply!
My go-to colors are Sevres Blue, Rose, Ultra, Cad Yellow and Cad Red Light. Also loving Violet Blue these days!
