Painting Plein Air in Oil in Virginia and Watercolor Beach Painting, Dreams of the Turtle King, Flip Flop Farmer 13090

 Flip Flop Farmer 13090
12x12 on Ampersand Gessobord

This was painted on our last day in the Leslie Saeta plein air, oil, palette knife workshop in Sandbridge VA but we were in the Pungo community. They were so kind to let us hang out there and even watched our "stuff" while we got a pizza for lunch and returned to finish up the day. I had posted this without success with the beach house wifi and then came home and gave it a few hot licks and will post again.  Then I've giving my readers a blog break for a few days and taking one myself. This has been a busy and fun 30 days of painting and posting each day.

 I am in the process of painting 24 watercolor illustrations for a book of poems, Dreams of the Turtle King, by Denise Bossarte and all the poems will be about the beach. The book should be ready for publication in December. Buffet is all about seagulls and I think of them in the air more than in the water but here they are having lunch. All of these images will be available from my Daily Paintworks gallery and here is the link:
