Sometimes I think all I do is tweak things. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. After living with this piece for a while I just wasn’t loving it. I decided the beach needed to be a whole lot warmer, I needed to paste some light on at the water’s edge and add some very subtle shadows under the tiki umbrellas. I now have my favourite colour mix for sand (naples yellow. burnt umber, burnt sienna, raw sienna, lemon yellow and white). Now I do love it – whew.
