Plein Air Painting at Scarborough Beach

The morning of Tuesday 4 April surprised us all with rain and mist, but after a much needed soaking, the weather cleared. Rain umbrellas turned into sunshades, outer layers of clothing were shed and our outing could go ahead as planned.

The beach was beautifully warm and clear, the sea a sparkling blue. There were lovely contrasts between the sea, white sand and huge red rocks, with just a little residual mist hanging about the mountains, for extra atmospheric effect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each of us found the perfect spot, with the perfect view to paint, producing seascapes and landscapes, or a combination of the two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to Yvonne Ankerman for doing the arranging and to the brave SASA members who took a chance on the weather. Thanks, as well, to Ronnie for the great photos.
