Original artwork description:

“Give me coffee to change the things I can, and the beach to accept the things I can’t.” – Unknown

This is a painting that I have worked up in the studio from a number of little studies done at the beach. When I was out the weather then was great for the most part, but the wind did tend to get up a bit in the afternoon, and the surfers all had a blast. These guys, the kite surfers, get incredibly high up with the kites, and look to me that they don’t want to be coming down too quick.

All too much for me – I just sit in the sand, and make colour notes in my sketchbook. There is always something about painting directly from life which (usually) provides a stimulating record of the experience of having actually been there and recorded the experience, as opposed to copying a photograph (which was taken by someone else) in the comfort and safety of the studio.

P.S. …. I took some coffee with me!
