Beach Study II - Sunset

6x6 oil on panel

We had such clouds and a fair amount of rain at the beach that we only had good sunsets twice during the week - but WOW - what sunsets they were. Just devastatingly beautiful!
What amazed me also was how long my paintings stayed wet. In Austin they dry overnight. Not here, what a difference the humidity makes. At home even the paint on my palette hardens overnight - which is very annoying and wasteful.

Dear Robin,
Thank you for sending very interesting info regarding humidity & oil painting. Keep up wonderful work!
Kind regards,

I've had good luck with putting a sheet of waxed paper over my oils on the palette. When I'm ready to paint I even scrape the paint that sticks to the paper and mix it together for some interesting shades.
