"Hi Wenda! I certainly agree with everyone else. I like the warm (orangey) colors of the sand next to the cool blue of the ocean. Then back to the cooler blue-gray of the beach in shadow. A super quickie color study...Now how large are you going to…"

Thanks Mark for your comment on my water mixable oil painting.  I cannot give you a comparison on regular oils and wm oils, but I think the water mixables are probably a bit stiff compared to the buttery standard oil paints. For this painting I just used water with the paint (no linseed oil) even though I have some.
