A demo - Sandcastles and Seaweed




I was a last minute substitute for the Mesa Art League on Tuesday and I started this pastel with watercolor under. From a photo I took on the beach last summer, I just developed it and was pleasantly surprised how it looked framed.
Nice to unwind and get my elbow working.

Debra, I want to say that must have been a fascinating demo to watch. Next time you might be the first one they call, rather than the substitute.
