Before you put your easel in the middle of the beach, just walk over to the water. Very often there's so much more going on -there-! Great stuff to paint.
Often we'll have great light in the morning when I'll do the demo to show my students the possibilities in choosing a subject, or to paint the ocean, sky, or to capture light, and so on.
Here I was struck with the creamy -pinkish almost- colors of the clouds and reflections of the sky in the wide shallow area here.
Plain luck a horse carriage passes by. That's just the thing that completes the scene.
