Beach Scene

Here is another beach scene in Varadero Beach in Cuba… I am trying, without success, to paint beach scenes. With this painting I used a different set of colours. I tried Raw Umber for the sand, much better than my previous tryouts, Cerulean Blue for the sky and some Sap Green in the palapas fronds with some Burnt Orange. I am having difficulty with the shadows.

J’essayais de nouvelles techniques — qui ont tombé à l’eau — LOL
