Coastal waters

Spring Take a stroll by the coast with Christine Pybus as you pick up hints and techniques for painting the changing seasons
Girl in a Red Beret, Sketch at Sandside Café , oil on board, 6×8in. (15×20cm) A favourite drawing and painting place of mine, beachside cafés have an abundance of colour, interest and let’s not forget, coffee and cakes. What more civilised place could there be to sit with a sketchbook or paints?


Develop compositional skills in any medium

Practise mark making with oils

Work through the oil-painting process from sketch to finished painting

With no daffodils, leaves, lambs or snowdrops, what, you might well ask, is the difference between winter and spring on the beach? On the face of it, the changes are less obvious, but pause for just a moment to look and you’ll find that they’re far more significant than you might imagine.
