Beach baby beach

The beach is calling me but as I'm landlocked again I'm painting it. This evening I came home from work and have done the undercoat for an oil painting of my favourite beach.

Painting in watercolours is opposite to painting in oils. You get one go at it and there is no adding white or light once the mark is on the paper.

I prefer to use a palette knife rather than brushes for oils, as the textures it creates is outstanding.

This little beach scene is going to sustain me for a while...

I'm planning on crocheting a mermaid blanket for winter. Yes, a mermaid blanket, that looks like a tail and you can wear it to keep warm. Just the thing for a Canberra winter. Maybe I could find a hot boyfriend to keep me warm...
