Want to Pick up the Pace? - plein air beach scene,debbie miller
6x6" oil on panel.
Spent the first real spring-like afternoon doing some plein air painting at the beach - at Warrens Pt. in Little Compton, RI.
My plan was to do studies of the waves and rocks - and I did do that but you know I cant resist painting the people!
This is THE best way to improve your powers of observation and to learn to paint faster! Really, you are painting your memory of the scene - a gesture of the person. Its challenging, difficult and wicked fun ;)
