New Palette for Beach paintings inspired by sunset pastels

I have been enjoying a new palette for my beach paintings. The lavenders, pinks and peaches remind me of our biweekly beach outtings with friends. I organized a weekly sunset gathering on our beautiful beaches.  No one in the large group can make it every week but try when we can. We all bring chairs and libations and even though the sun sets behind the trees and houses, there is usually a beautiful pink glow to the evening. Living on the East Coast is different than if you can actually see the sun set in the WEST. Growing up in California, it was a ritual to watch for a green flash. Recently I volunteered to help raise money for the lifeguards so two of the paintings have lifeguard chairs. A part donation when sold.
