The dunes, once more

We have stolen away to the beach. Well, that’s not entirely accurate, as with a toddler we aren’t really “stealing away” anywhere any more. More aptly put: We have loaded the entire contents of our house into the van and 6 hours later unloaded it into the beach house just in time for a total melt down. Our toddler was none too happy either. ;)

But somewhere around the 24 hour mark I think we all settled into a groove, and I actually got up yesterday morning and painted.

This was originally to be a sky painting, but I got drawn into the light on the dunes once more. This was painted from our balcony ( our footpath to the beach is on the left. ) It’s a great spot, but east-facing, and in the morning, completely sunlit. I started this around 7:20 a.m. By 9 I was roasting and had to wrap it up. I am mobile blogging so the color is seeming a bit washed out, but you get the general idea here of the morning’s attempt.
