How did the omission happen? I was feeling 'Late for a very important date!' so to speak. AKA: It's taken me over a week to be able to add the lettering to this page and I really wanted to post it this week! Ahhh, the classic haste makes waste.
I decided to sketch directly with watercolor. The first strokes were with raw sienna. It's a great first color to lay down for the sky, land and water. Once dry it won't turn a blue wash green. Cobalt blue and peacock blue were used for the second layer of sky and water.
The beach is very close to the airport. Quite a few planes took off while we were there. I thought it fitting to capture one as a remembrance of our time there.
Just before we left I did a quick sketch looking down the beach.
All in all, a lovely day. A lovely beach.
The answer is.... the date! No page should be with one : )
