Beach Scene Painting

This was the challenge on the DSFDS blog for the past 2 weeks. I love doing paintings like this. You only need a few basic colours and shapes to create the right feeling for the painting. This week the artists realy did a great job with this beach scene.

Hi everyone. Thanks for the kind comments. It makes painting so much more fun knowing someone out there finds pleasure in my work.

I love the strong vertical composition and the way you did the bright colors on top of the dark background. Nice.

Hi Ann. I started working on a dark background about a year ago and find it a great way to achieve brighter colours.
