Still working on this one
I've colored in my beach painting. I'm happy with the water, and am learning more as I go about painting the figures. After taking this photo, I used a palette knife to scrape the excess paint off of the mom and girls. I want to paint them over again. Plus, I forgot to put in the seagulls.
This is oil on 8 x10 inch hardboard panel.
A little side note.... the day I was at the beach taking pictures, it was very bright and sunny. I couldn't see the image on the cameras viewfinder very well, I just pointed in the general direction and clicked the button. When I got home, and looked through the images, I was surprised to see the little girl in the middle had turned to look at me in this one! and I thought I had gone unnoticed.. ha! That's why I chose this particular one to paint.
