Small Beach Scene

Small Beach Scene
5 x 8 soft pastels/watercolour underpainting
cold pressed Strathmore watercolor paper

Every once in a while I have to try something to remind myself of why I don't do this more often. I really don't like to work on watercolor paper with my pastels. I thought that if I did an underpainting, I wouldn't constantly fight the paper. I was wrong, again. Hopefully, I have learned my lesson. I really need some edges to define the sand spit in the distance. I think I will do this scene again on paper I like. I will consider this a practice sketch. I can see things in the composition I will change for the next one, although I like it (the composition) for the most part.
