My Ode to Summer

I feel like most people who live in Philly can connect with this. Driving to Wildwood, Sea Isle, Island Beach, wherever! Traveling "down the shore" to New Jersey during the summer is always a welcome escape from the bustle of the city. I wanted to make a painting about Jersey so here it is. Happy last few weeks of summer everyone.
Below is the color study that I did for the piece. Color studies are nice, but seeing the changes and decision-making that happen once you get to the final touches of the painting is even nicer.

Love the fact that it reflects the shore's colors. As someone who grew up near the JS, I really appreciate this.
