I grew up on Long Island so the beach was where I spent most of my summer weekends. So vacation, to me, means going to the beach.
I find it hard to concentrate on making art when I spend the day listening to the compelling sound of the ocean waves, sitting under an umbrella, and reading fun books.
But I brought lots of art supplies with me and my mission today was to find some shells and use the color of those shells to paint a watercolor background in my journal.
I'm also taking a 30 day class from Alisa Burke called, aptly enough, Ocean Alchemy. While she is inspired by the west coast, I'm inspired by the east coast. It will be interesting to see the difference our art journals will be. Certainly, the palette will be quite different as well as the flora.
