I had a little bit of extra time on my hands in Kona today so I packed up a few supplies and walked down the street about 20 minutes to find this little beach.
This is the first time I’ve unrolled these canvases and I’m anxious to see how they hold up.
Here I’m using my watercolor pastels as I only brought carry-on bags - so no liquid paint. The watercolor pastels are great for this case as I can use them like a colored pencil and then apply water - turning them into nice pigmented washes.
And here is where I’ll stop for today - we’ve got dinner plans later so I want to make sure I’m back at the hotel and showered after this incredibly hot painting session!
