On Monday I sold one of my original watercolours painted on location of a beach scene. It was a timely reminder of how much I do enjoy painting “plein air” and the fun I have capturing the natural elements of sky, sea and land. Longsands Beach, Tynemouth provides great subject matter to paint on the spot.
Monday the 3rd September 2012 was a glorious day so we decided to spend the day at Longsands Beach at Tynemouth with the family. Inspired by the earlier sale of the beach scene, I decided to take my watercolours and made a couple of sketchbook studies of folk enjoying the weather which I may well work up into larger paintings.
