Beach 17

Click image to enlarge.  Click title for more information and views.

Title: Beach 17 (Number 17 in the series)
Size: 27x40"
Medium: Acrylic on acid-free vellum paper.
Date: 1/22/2011 

This one was inspired by Beach 11, my favorite and the one I entered into the SDAI International Show.  I really like this one too though.  For some reason the tall, vertical stripes are appealing to me right now.  Although these Beach paintings are truly multi-directional, as you can see if you click on the Title to see more views,  I have been hanging them vertically rather than horizontally here at home.

Today I finished the sketch for Beach 18.  It is multi-directional too, but I seem to prefer  it hanging horizontally.  Looking forward to starting to paint it tomorrow.  Aaron Brothers is having its penny sale.  I picked up two 30x40 canvases and will use one for beach 18.
