Ponte Vedra, Watercolor Beach Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, is another
 gorgeous and favorite beach. I have
quite the collection of sharks' teeth that 
I've found there over the years.

beachscape simple and on the abstract side.

Afternoon Delight, Beach Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


4" x 10" Watercolor
$75 + shipping

Now that I'm back in the Valley of the Sun
these beach images seem dream-like.

Working on 300 lb. watercolor paper,
my objective was to paint JUST enough, i.e.,
the right strokes,  the right shapes,
the right ratio of water to pigment.
And find a pleasing composition and "feel."
This one hit it for me.

Dreams, Beach Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


5" x 7" Watercolor, $75

Painting with watercolor on Yupo paper
was a brand new experience for me.
I had the good fortune to spend a month
in Fernandina Beach, FL, this past September.
I took watercolors on this trip since
they're easier to transport than oils,
and,
I wanted to explore watercolor techniques.

Somewhere, Contemporary Abstract Landscapes by Amy Whitehouse

Inspired by a photo taken by Grant Ferguson in Montana,

Solitude 2, Seascape and Figurative Paintings by Amy Whitehouse

transport me to an ever-enthralling place.
