Dana Point, California

I took another day of wave study. It is such a wonderful place to paint and sketch. You all know how time consuming drawing can be and studying these waves is going to take more time and more days. I stay away from the beach during the weekend because of the people out of school and off work, but during the week and early in the morning the area is only populated with locals. Summer vacation is coming up and that means children out of school and family vacations. My beach will be filled with models. It's a wonderful predicament, having to go to the beach over and over again. But someone has to do it. LOL.

Hi Pat,
You are so generous and kind with your words, thankyou so much for such nice words on my posts you always make me smile from ear to ear.
These drawings and paintings are amazing, you are definately a very talented artist! Painting the sea is so hard and you make it look so forceful and really capture its moodiness, you're an inspiration.
Hope you're havng a great day
Warm wishes from across the big wide ocean

Lovely drawings and paintings Pat. I had a close look at the painting and love the textures.
It looks as if you are spending a long time in the sun. Don't forget your suncream, a good hat and a sun umbrella, especially now that it's getting hotter and hotter. Can't wait to see your beach models.

Beautiful images of the ocean. I love how you have managed to capture the color and energy of the ocean.

Love these! Can't wait to get back to CA beaches. PR beaches are much prettier of course, but the beach culture in CA is what I miss, and the feel of it. Can't wait to see you in a month :)

What wonderful sea studies - lucky you to live near the sea, but at least you make the absolute best of it!
