Boca Raton, Florida - (RESULTS)

Post by shawn » Sun Oct 17, 2010 1:59 pm

It was beautiful in South Florida yesterday. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the wind was cool. I ended up going to Delray, which is a few miles north of Boca. Delray is a charming little city with beautiful architecture and stunning beaches. The people are quite nice too :)

Here's a lovely view of a side alley. I was captivated by the yellow orange buildings contrasting with the blue of the sky. I also like the industrial aspect of it. And of course, a truck parked right in front of my view! I still managed to finish it up though.

This is a view from a parking lot facing toward the ocean. The water is just beyond the row of bushes in the background.

Thanks everyone! It's actually Liquitex heavy body acrylic on Moleskine watercolor paper. It was a pain trying to keep it wet. Next time I'll bring a stay-wet palette. :P

Thanks Shawn,
I'm glad you had a good day in South Florida. I remember those Delray colors you captured from an art festival years ago! :thumbup:
