I was painting very quickly, just doing exercises to try to capture the movement of the water. When these two youngsters walked into my sketch, there was still room for them, so I added them in, and it made a picture.
The morning was warm, but the water was still so chilly and wild. The two kids relished the waves and paid little attention to their parents’ worry about the cold. It was wonderful to see so many people out enjoying the sun and water.
