Mary Ann Kitchell Art Blog
I live in central New Jersey. Although I love the beach, the ocean, and watching the antics of the resident seagulls, I don't often have the chance to travel to the Jersey Shore.
It's a treat to be able to paint houses from this area of New Jersey. I love painting the warm sand colors and tall sea grasses. The challenge here is often the lack of background trees. I've learned to incorporate clouds in the sky ... and if I think the client will approve, I add a seagull or two for more interest. I know I've been successful if I can hear the ocean and smell the salt air!
