Beach paintings coming soon!

All photography and artwork by Helen Dealtry
Some new paintings to share with you in the shop tomorrow and I wanted to just write a few notes on how the series came to be.

Initially I was inspired by the beautiful photographs by K Pederson, of Fog and swell blog. K's eye for the intricate details in nature just blow my mind on a daily basis. Check out her gorgeous Instagram feed and you will see what I mean.
Also, for the fourth of July this year, I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend with some of my favorite people, in Portland, Maine.

The photos below show the journey I took and some of the imagery that inspired the paintings. 

Each piece was painted on watercolor paper using a mix of watercolor paints, watercolor inks and the odd spot of gouache. They will be available to purchase in the shop (under artwork) 7/16 at 11 EST. I hope you will go take a look, maybe they will remind you of a piece of your summer!
