Pull Up a Chair
oil on hardboard
I had a lot of fun with this one. This was again a scene that I couldn't decide how to crop, and when I changed from horizontal to vertical it all fell into place. I suppose for landscape painters it's easy to default to a horizontal format; surprising things happen when you switch that around.
My palette looked very different while painting this - colors I don't normally use, like Phthalo Green and Magenta for the beach chairs.
