My host was very familiar with this area, and had planned a great week of sand, water, food, and plein air! While I was there, I posted snapshots on InstaGram but I have cropped the photos as shown below.
The first time I walked on the beach, I was intrigued with how blue the shadows appeared from the sea grass on the white sand. So similar to how the shadows appear in Ohio on winter snow!
The next day we went to a local park, and I decided to paint one of the palms in watercolor/gel pens:
The next day, we went to another park which had really interesting sand dunes. This is pastel on PastelMat. I'm really happy with this one!
