This painting was started on my annual painting trip to the beach with my friend Judy. It was a very hot day at Island Beach, NJ. I wanted to swim more than paint. I added more of the dark values later at home referring to the photo I took of the scene. Scenes on a popular summer beach are part landscape and part figure study, and all always in motion.

I have been out painting this summer, but not posting as much as I should. Here is one of my favorite landscapes in New Jersey, Stone Tavern Lake. It is part of Asumpink wildlife reserver. Right near my home in Roosevelt. It is a water color of the first morning light.
