Painting women on the beach has been a large part of my painting oeuvre during my career. I am drawn to the ocean and its beauty and the colors of the wet sand and the water. When all of the elements are right -- the tide, the sun, the wind and the people on the beach, there is magic! The colors of the outfits, whether they are white or red, reflect on the sand and create a myriad of colors that are so much fun to paint! I look for these reflections in the wet sand as I am photographing my models.
Next time you are on the beach, look for these reflections!
