A Day At The Beach – Strathmere, NJ


Intrigued Framed 16 x 20 By Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Intrigued (Framed 16 x 20) By Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Talk about a perfect day at the beach. Pictured is a typical day at the Jersey Shore. Strathmere beach is usually pretty quiet and it wasn’t crowded this day. The sky was solid blue and the light was perfect. I sketched this boy as he played and took a series of photos which turned into a beautiful painting. Right before we left, I gave the boys grandparents one of the black and white sketches I had completed.

I wanted to learn how to portray waves and putting the boy in the foreground gave the waves the right perspective. Plus it made the painting much more interesting. The color of the water and the sand is completely different in southern New Jersey compared to Florida. Much cooler colors.

This painting is currently on exhibit at the Gloucester County College.
