Landscape - Beach Scene

How I love the sky, the sea and land.
Today I paint myself into a scene
of visual delight; though I'm on sand,
I dip my brush first into vivid green.

Tall trees are in my view far left and right.
I paint the path made out of stones that led
me to this beach which now is my escape!
I paint the sand, then dip into some red!

I'm all alone in my red bikini.
I like the fact that it’s in contrast to
the white of sand and forest’s verdancy.
But, oh, the backdrop is amazing blue!

My picture’s top half is the sea. Beyond
its tranquil surface, now my eyes are drawn
to hues of brightness of which I am fond
as twilight’s sky I am adding on.

Some tangerine with crimson I have swirled
onto the canvas, and the red’s the same
as my bikini! Finally, this world
I've been painting I inscribe with my name!

Congrats on the POTD Andrea. I think the sea and sand is a constant temptation for us inland bodies, as other side of the river always beckons...:)

I see some Burnt Umber and Sienna on one horizon, and Payne's Gray in the sky on the other! This is wonderful, Andrea ... so exquisitely described and the things it paints in my mind are all joyous and sublime ... I love it - a fav for sure! Congrats - much-deserved, my friend! :-) <3

Lovely flow of imagery, Andrea!! "Verdancy" is a cool word (have heard / used "Verdant" before, but interesting to see that variation. Best of luck with the contest. Regards, John.
