Bathing Beauties

This is a series of small beach scenes I recently painted using some old family photos for my reference. I used sepia watercolors only on 140 lb. Arches watercolor paper.

This first photo shows the three paintings together on my work table along with my ruler close by so you can get a general idea of the sizes of the paintings.

Although this photo isn't very clear you can tell that this person was enjoying a warm day in a canoe.

This painting shows a woman posing for the photographer in front of a private property sign.

This last painting was fun to paint because I felt these girlfriends were having a great day at the beach.
