More pier

Activity at Avon Pier, 6.75 x 9" watercolor
Photographer friend Dick needed another day at Avon Pier, and so we traveled back again the next day, allowing me to capture a different view of the old structure erected in 1962, just one year after the military delivered my family to North Carolina from the Philippines.

Alas! — a place in the shade of the pier that gave me a view worth capturing! I particularly like the spot of intense color offered by people gathered under their colorful umbrellas. Painting some quick watercolor sketches of beach people allowed ample drying time for the base coat of the pier painting to dry.
