My husband is one of those early risers and he likes to take a ride to the beach and take the most amazing sunrise pictures. This is my first sunrise painting, I learned alot and cant wait to do another.
I cant seem to find a blue for water that I like, Ive changed the water color many times and cant find the color that says Atlantic Ocean. This is the first bigger painting Ive done so Im proud of that .
Im so happy to finally be posting something. This is my son and my niece at the beach ad I am so happy to have finished this one. This was a bit over my head, I have never done people and this is my sons face so I really struggled. My husband who has an unbelievable eye for detail helped me finish this....god bless him.This was a real challenge for me but Im happy with it and I think I learned alot. I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Blaylock and she does alot of people on beach and she does it well so please check hers out.
I just spent way too long trying to take a picture of a Margarita glass I painted and I just cant get a good picture. (probably a sign that I shouldnt post because it didnt go so well) I would love to hear others tricks to how they get good pictures to post. This was a 6x6 with a black background which seemed to really make it difficult. All suggestions appreciated.
OK so I know this looks like one I already posted but this was the original that I did in class with a trained professional. There really is a big difference. I realize that when I have someone looking over my shoulder I feel more accountable and dont rush it like I do on my own. I just wish I could have her in my pocket for when I had questions. I am working on a piece in class which is 2 children on the beach, I would have already thrown the canvas if I didnt have back up. Hope to finish on Tuesday.
So I worked on these yesterday and tried to take all the comments I received and put them in play. I think they look much better, especially the granny. Keep the comments coming I appreciate it! Thanks!
Thanks to all for the great suggestions....hoping to get some time to paint later and try everything out however I realized I threw out the avocado. Does anyone take photos when they do still lifes so they can go back to it or would that not work out so well. Just wondering.
