It was a great beach day at York Long Sands, big surf, sunny skies and lots of people. I headed over to the beach to meet three artist friends. We had to grab parking spots as soon as we saw them. The tide was going out so vacationers were coming in droves to grab a spot on the sand at midday. I painted small 4 sketches of people enjoying the beach.
I stayed near my car as the wind picked up and it offered a bit of protection. Toward the end of the day the other cars were gone and I did have to grab my easel as it was lifting off the ground. The temps dropped into the 60’s and we needed to put on layers to stay warm. Its the nature of early summer in Maine!
