A rather large format to be working in the open air, alla Plein-air as the French would say. But with the help of a 3 meter parasol, layed on the ground, in the direction of the wind, it is possible! The same view as the previous posting, however set myself up a little closer to that path leading to the beach entrance. Actually it was very cloudy behind me, but now and again the sunlight would break through, and that is what interested me, thus that's what I paintied. Those two feathered friends seemed to be enjoying the wind, as they and others just kept hovering back and forth, across my view span.
