This little painting was done rather fast. My goal wasn't to get an exact rendering, just the "feeling" of the cold wind at the beach in Maine. We had all the clothes in our suitcases on, and it still wasn't enough to keep us warm. It's 22 degrees here this morning and if I remember correctly, it felt like 22 or less there, and that was the beginning of September, not January. I've painted this scene before in pastel, but thought of trying it again in oil...Like I said, just a quick one..and just for the "feeling."
