Beach Sketch

acrylic on paper canvas

On this particular morning I decided to try a more complete painting of the beach. I figure if I can paint large paintings, on site, during a wedding reception, then I could paint a beach scene. Well, I think I could really, but the paint dried so darn fast! Its my normal complaint about acrylics. I was interested in trying the new ones coming out which have a longer "open" times and which can be wetted or spritzed to keep wet on the canvas even. But nothing, I think, can really compare to oil paints. The real, old fashioned ones. I've also tried the water miscible oils, but have not liked the results with those either.
