Today was a very busy day. I painted Wave Study #16 in the morning sunshine
. It was sunny but cold with the wind blowing from the east off the Coastal Range. That meant spindrift coming off the waves. Here is my wave study:
The tide was going out which meant my subject was going away from me. I prefer painting when the tide is coming in but sometimes that is not possible

. I had to spend the afternoon with appointments and errands and then came back and painted my first painting for my 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I decided to paint a finished painting from today's wave study! I purposefully don't take a camera with me when I am out painting. I prefer working from life so for the following painting I used my wave study and memory as a reference. Here it is:
It is fun to finally paint a finished painting from a wave study.

I have been meaning to do that. I plan to do that for all 30 days of the challenge. I won't always be able to make a painting of that day's wave study and it will sometimes have to be of a previous wave study. Tomorrow is a good example. I have to paint in the studio in the morning before going to pick up two of my paintings from a gallery exhibit. On the way back home in the afternoon I will stop and paint my wave study for the day.
Well, it has been a long day so I have a few more postings of this painting then off to bed. This painting will be going up for sale in the next day or two so stay tuned! Good night everyone!
I love it! What a great start and a treasure of a little painting. I am so impressed.
