Another pearly gray day today but with the addition of a stiff North wind blowing rain sideways on the beach. Not good painting conditions at all but I did spend time just studying the waves. That is always a joy.Here is Wave Study #40, done yesterday:

Wave Study #40 is the final study that will fit on my bulletin board. Here it is, all filled up:

I really enjoy looking at the paintings in my studio this way. Sometimes it can get discouraging learning to paint the sea from life but when I stop and look, I am satisfied that I am making progress.
I will need to take these down to start the next batch. I need to find a good way to store these little studies so that I can easily access them for reference.
I am so enjoying painting these studies that I am considering turning them into a painted journal of a year on the coast, which would mean I would need to continue well beyond 100 studies even with not painting a painting a day.
I will have to think about it. This weekend (Sunday, Monday) is time for friends and community. I will have a few new things to share on my next post on Tuesday.
