Day 18 The Dunes

Day 18  Outer Banks

When I first started painting, I painted this from a photo I took when my husband and I and our daughters 
and their families went on vacation to the Outer Banks.

It rained almost the entire week and water was standing knee deep everywhere.
The beach was beautiful even in the rain.

If you'll look closely in the top left corner, you can see some blue sky peeking out.

I painted one of these for each of our daughters before I took my first class or had any idea what I was doing.

Needless to say, they have much to be desired.

Today as I crave going to the beach, I thought I'd give it another shot.

It was much more fun than the first time I painted it.

This is 7" x 5" acrylic on a panel.

  1. Nice composition, Sharon. I love the Outer Banks, too.

  2. Thanks Fay for your wonderful comment. We didn't have a great time because when it rains like that, there is no place for the water to go. We had to drive through a lot of water and we weren't sure we were going to be able to get one of our daughter'scars out of there when it was time to go home. But our home did have its own pool and a covered hot tub and thank goodness for the pool table. We enjoyed each other's company but probably won't go back.

    Thanks again.
