My painting for February, Beach Day at Elba, I got this one in a little late at" The Virtual Paintout", I sketched 2 pages , too large so modified 2nd half of sketch , and used Derwent watercolor pencils,used wrong wax for highlights, and corrected it with white charcoal, after scraping of wax to save the painting : )~ The paper I used was Canson 90lb, 9x12 W/Color paper. I think I'll use 300lb paper and tube paints for the next painting.


  1. While your process reads like it was troublesome, this is a happy painting that I noticed right away--being a beach bum stuck in the snowy Midwest.

    1. Thanks for the comment, I agree,beaches are great, cold in the midwest but lot of snow scenes to paint.
