Plein Air - Overstrand Beach

As promised here is my painting from last weekend's trip to Overstrand on the Norfolk coast.  I've only recently started doing any plein air painting so to try it on the beach was a great experience.  There were a lot of challenges to contend with before I was even able to start my painting.  The wind on the coast there was so strong so finding a sheltered spot that still had a good view was difficult let alone carrying all the equipment from the campsite.  What is it about sand that just makes everything harder, plus it gets everywhere!  I'm glad I did it, but this first experience painting on the beach was far from relaxing!!!

Let me know what you think of the results though!  Have you ever done any painting on the beach?  How did you find it?  Be sure to share your work :)
