Windy April Day at the Beach 6x8 canvas panel

This is a view of the Lake Ontario shore, from Charlotte Beach near my home. It was a cold windy day, and there were not many people out, but it was a great day to fly a kite. I had a hard time painting this picture, even though there doesn't seem to be much in it. It was a good lesson in color mixing for me.


  1. Beautiful idea to show the expanse of the blue sky next to the tiny kite.

  2. I think you really captured what cold on the beach feels like! The figures are bundled up, and the sand is cool-colored. You've shown a cold wind on the surf , and I love the expanse of sky with just that bright patch of color in the kite. Really great painting.
