Tower Beach Monday
Yesterday Echo, myself and a few friends drove down to Tower Beach in Delaware and spent the day. It was just an awesome day, about 80, slight breeze and it was just perfect. Now I'm not a big beach guy, I like the water in the carribean better, where you can see stuff, not the brimey atlantic, so I didn't frolic in the waves, I painted some watercolors and relaxed, people watched. I hadn't been to a beach in 12 years.
here are some of the watercolors I did. One I gave away to a family visiting from Montreal. I was painting the father and his wife noticed and asked for the painting, so I signed it and gave it to them, I had a very nice chat with them. The daughter who had cystic fibrosis had just had a lung transplant and had been down to this beach before her operation a few years back, so they were returning as a celebration along with the two Chinese girls she had adopted.
Watercolor can be a challenge, it's also a challenge to paint in the wind and the sand, as sand gets everywhere hahaha. but it was fun, I haven't messed with watercolors in a bit, since the last time I was out west I think.
I think Echo and I will go back, make a few more day trips down that way before summer is over.
