Drawing and Painting “Dune Bathers” Tina Ingraham June, 2015 ©
“Dune Bathers at Popham Beach”, were derived from a selection of my figure studies created in charcoal on paper from 1994- 2006. Since most of the drawings were of single figures, I composed groupings of figures for eventual paintings. This involved copying the drawings while enlarging some and reducing others to create compositional studies. I hired two models for working at the beach, directing them to emulate the studies and painted for three hours at a time from June through late September. enduring gentle breezes and hot glorious sun.
