Plage Cayo Largo Beach

This is a sideview from our beach in Cayo Largo… quite nice. The sea was much more feisty than it seems in my painting — but hey! I was just happy to get the colours right!
Voici la vue de la plage de notre hôtel… la mer était beaucoup plus tumultueuse qu’elle en a de l’air — mais hey! J’étais juste contente d’avoir réussi la couleur.

  1. It does make blooms but I like those! I’ll have to try the square format one of these days.


  2. How do you like these books Jane?

      Hi Shari,
      I am really enjoying them and the square format is really refreshing. I have noticed though that the paper does not like very light washes as it blooms easily? Not sure but there are a couple of paintings that I completely ruined because of that? Or maybe that it is just because of me — LOL ;-)
