I went out to paint when the edge of Sandy was going by, it was just windy. Had a nice walk on the beach too.
like to start off with a fast sketch before I do the painting to warm
up and catch any compositional problems. The wind was blowing strong
and it looked like rain so I parked under a pavilion at Fredrick Douglas
park on the beach. I got my sketch finished and the rain started
coming down, well not down really more like across, it was blowing
pretty horizontal. Got soaked on the way to the car which was about 20
Last night I pulled out my sketch and made the painting below from it, its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite. $200.
