Iris at Wyland Beachwalk gave me the idea to create a snorkel/surf shack and I had to add some extra flourishes like the umbrellas, yellow birds (of course) and sleepy kitty on the snorkle pick/up lanai.
These shacks are a lot of fun to paint. I enjoy designing a whole scene with little fun details that you have to look closer to find. My yellow birds are checking out the commotion below, deciding whether to dive, surf or snorkel today. I think their best bet would be to snorkel since the ocean looks very calm today... Fun at the beach!
