Primary Colors

This DPW challenge was very deceptive. At first glance painting this photo in primary colors and using 3 values, seemed so easy. I am very out of practice, and probably spoiled, regarding color mixing.The biggest challenge for me was not using white. I did some scraping, added more medium. Very difficult. I decided it was impossible to avoid not using white and only used a dab here and there.

I love this subject. I have twin Grandsons that in a few days will be 6 months old. Can I tell you I hope to spend many summer days at the beach with the boys when they get a little older? I lived in Florida while my own children were growing, our best memories are at the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. No electronics, just discoveries, wonderful conversation and buckets of laughter.
