I went with Arthur and Lino into the gated community of Kapoho. There was a protected bay that we painted.
Arthur had a commission so he had the access clicker from the owner.
Here's Arthur doing his "thang".
Lino is very methodical in his plein air technique.
And here's the start of my little painting.
The best part of the day was getting into the water and swimming around. The area is known for it's geothermal pools and though this was a bay and not a pool the water was still definitely warmer than the open ocean waters.
A friendly sea turtle came up to us and allowed a closer look. Sweet.
