|9 x 12 pastel|
This morning I went out to a point where the breakwater is and an inlet for the swimming lagoon for our resort. I thought I would practice waves again. This time, I did a sketch first, to work out a better composition than the last one.
I had a few visitors. I enjoyed talking with a Japanese woman from Nagoya, Japan. We spoke in our broken English and my few words of Japanese. You see, I have an interest in Nagoya. When I was an exchange student, I visited a family there for three weeks.
Another lady from New York, who is a watercolorist, came by too. She was quite fascinated how I start my paintings with watercolor, and then add pastel on top.
There is a nice koi pond here at our resort. I'll have to do a painting of fish - only this time should be more challenging - they keep moving.
