Wish You Were Here - beach scene

21.75 x 16.5 watercolor on Italia 140 lb soft press paper done today.  This is a crop from a horizontal beach seascape with major elements rearranged, such as removing the picket fence that went straight across, parallel to the bottom, a compositional no-no! The scene had brush, grass, and branches throughout so those were edited and omitted.  Now the viewer can walk in and go towards the next dune, the water, or the houses distant upper left.  All I drew with pencil were the houses and large foliage upper right; all else is done with a brush.  Sure wish I was there!
