A Welcome Change.
Having the blue days replaced by stormy days, the sunbathers might be sad, but for the painter, it’s a welcome change. With the easel up high – above the blowing sand – and not being fearful to catch some rain during the session, it’s just awesome.

‘Kite – Light – Shade – Storm’
The light on the cean was the main reason to paint this view, but in this case, the figures make this painting.
A strong foreground can help a painting a lot.
You can start with the foreground, or place it in at 1/3 into the painting. Never wait until the end.
Sometimes there’s ‘nothing there’ or no foreground. That’s very fine too.
Then the painting will be more about sky & sea. Maybe you then can fit smaller figures in, just to accentuate the light or perspective.
