Edisto in May - Continued

Thought I'd break up this post as I was uploading enough images that Blogger was beginning to show some weary signs on my old Mac laptop. So here are a few more images and then I will quit - I promise.

Hannah's Bathingsuit
9x12 Kilimanjaro wc sketchbook

Deck chairs, well the ones that are not plastic anyway, are fun to draw and paint. This has become a series of sorts too - my daughter's drying beachwear on a deck chair.

Edisto Morning - 9x12

When I saw the live oaks and palm fronds reflecting in my morning coffee I couldn't resist.

The Turquoise House - 9x12 wc sketch

A quick sketch where i wanted to capture more light effects. Another view from the porch.

Early Morning Light - 9x12" wc

Yet another view from the porch. The dappled light was everywhere, a magnificent spring morning.

Young Man Fishing - 9x12" wc

What fun this was to do - the wind was blowing as I sat in the sand dunes trying to hold my sketchbook flat. I wanted to do some sketches of people on this visit but only managed this one - next time I will do a lot more I hope.

Nice pictures. I just came from your wife's blog where she links to yours for this beach visit. Looks like you all have a great time and it's all nicely recorded in paintings!
