I took this photo this morning around 5:30am on Willard Beach in South Portland Maine, while staying with some friends. I got some great photos of the sunrise and waves for reference photos for future paintings and photo prints to frame. It was a very relaxing, fun way to start my Sunday morning. I couldn't believe that I had the beach to myself, despite the early hour of the day. One of the delights of being a morning person I guess. I have shyed away from painting the human body, but have always wanted to, so this might be a great way to give it a try, jump in feet first.
