Beavertail Park, Jamestown Watercolor Painting

Beavertail Park, Jamestown, Watercolor Painting is about 12 X 16 inches done on Arches 140 pound paper. This is plein air painting done yesterday, which turned out to be a gorgeous day here in Rhode Island. I took lots of photos to work on paintings in my studio, but it's great to be outside to see the colors. I loved the contrast of those rocks and waves crashing against them and the delicate rose flowers that grow wild along the coast.

Just a reminder again that even though I am not posting here as regularly, I am painting every day! I have nearly completed the illustrations for the first book and ready to take them for scanning. A contract for a second book is "in the mail"....

And I would feel remiss if I didn't give you a word for today....this is from "The courage to Change" and is a quote by Francis de Sales:

"You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying,
to run by running, to work by working; and just so
you learn to love God and man by loving.
Begin as a mere apprentice and the very power of
love will lead you on to become a master
of the art."
