9 x 12
oil on masonite

This painting is from a photograph of a cousin's grandchildren. Found it a good exercise in monochromatic tones in the clothing, also movement in the wind.


  1. Ann, this is lovely! On the closeup view I can really enjoy your brushwork. You really did capture the feel of the wind. These two are so endearing as they face the ocean, hands clasped, futures ahead of them and feet firmly planted in the sand. I love the teals in the water, and pink tones in the sand. Also the way you indicated the buttons on her dress with just a few marks. Great job with the many colors of white!

  2. Lovely. I can see the wind in their hair. So nicely done.
