At the Breakers I started this painting with a drawing using a sepia pastel pencil to determine the size and placement on the canvas. I completed the wash in using Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue oil paints thinned with turpenoid. I start painting from the back, midground, and then foreground. Adding the far rocks first and working my way forward. I loosely describe the shadows on the figure when I get to the foreground. I keep the dress darker then It will eventually be.
