4x7 inches. Gouache on watercolor sketchbook paper.
What a great day to have been at the beach. We've been having some really warm sunny early spring days. It's tough to beat California in the spring because of days like this. We painted on the beach after having ice cream... Beat that, East Coasters! 😜
I really like the texture I can achieve in this Strathmore Visual Journal. It's a much better gouache sketchbook than I would have thought from looking at it. The paper is about as good at handling gouache as sketchbooks twice the price. That drybrush texture is perfect for getting that shine of the sun reflecting off of the water. I had fun getting a convincing look to that sunshine.
