I’m was excited to sit and paint yesterday morning. It felt like a clean slate as I’d be starting a new set of paintings. I have plenty of new beach photos to choose from because last week I took a spontaneous detour to the beach where I took tons of photos and videos.
It’s been a few weeks since I started a set of new watercolors and I was feeling very inspired – very hopeful. Sometimes because the first layers of a watercolor – for me – are the ugly stage, I lose that excitement. But I’ve learned to stick with paintings, work through the ugly stage. I’m committed to not giving up and seeing what I can do with them.
Have you visited my online shop? Prints of my seascapes are available on watercolor paper or canvas, in many sizes including the new “mini” canvas 11″ x 14″ at shop.eileenmckenna.com. Take a peek! The perfect gift for beach lovers.
