Pallini, Greece Virtual Paintout

I really love roaming around Google Maps of Greece.  In doing so, I've discovered the really blue ocean water.
 With this painting I was able to use my new Caran d'Ache Museum Aquarelle Marine set.  The set has the perfect shades of blues for the ocean and light bluff color that I used for the sand.  I did have to grab a couple of colors from my landscape set to help with rendering the sand.  I've never been a messy painter and I found it challenging to splatter the flecks for the pebbles on the beach.  But it got done.
This was painted in my 4" x 5.5" watercolor journal.
