Landscape Study #1 - Canatara Beach (medium - gouache)
I was finally able to leave the busy city of Toronto and returned to my hometown this summer. While visiting, I went to a nearby beach. After finding a spot to sit, I leaned back into my chair and allowed the sun's heat hug my body as I closed my eyes. The crashing waves were music to my ears. (Sigh).
Feeling inspired by the natural beauty, I decided to take several pics of the shoreline with the intent to create a series of beach paintings. And here we are. The first study. I decided to use gouache since I have never tried this medium before. I have to say I enjoyed experimenting with the medium today and look forward to creating more studies using gouache.
