Afternoon Beach - Oil Painting

"Afternoon Beach, study"
Oil on gesso board

Day three of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, and I have completed another one, woohoo!

This is a quick study of an afternoon beach, from a photo that I took last summer in Calabria, Italy.
To get to the beach you had to go down several steps, and the photo was taken from up the stairs, looking down.

I completed this study fairly quickly, and had fun including the figures and the umbrellas. I don't usually include people in my paintings, but simplified people are great to give a sense of proportions.
