Title: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: Karen on August 16, 2012, 08:58:39 PM
I tried the painting from memory using some local shells. i haven't put the little final spot spray on the foam yet - I'll wait for the replay. It was fun to do but I'm glad I put the spots on outside! It is very nerve wracking painting the foam over the shells and next time I will put in some thinner foam lines too.

Karen, very nice work!  You really have movement in that foam and it really stands out in true 3D form.

Do you ever find you're running out of really good descriptive words?   ???   :2funny: 

Karen you have done an exceptional job thus far. The sand looks very realistic. Banner work on the shell, having the little spots of colour peeking through the foam, and the bubbles in the foam.............

Yes, Val, I do!  It begins to sound redundant and mundane, doesn't it?

Perhaps we should develop a dictionary of 'Praise Phrases'.   :)

I agree! It does become difficult to praise someone's work without making them feel like, "Oh, she says that to everyone!". ???

Karen, I am always impressed by the quality of your work! This one is no exception! Wonderful!

Thanks Nolan, I liked the challenge of this painting - I'm trying to take your lessons and apply them but I don't always make it work - I can't manage your detail and colour yet - but I'm hoping one day .......
 Thank you everyone - There are some lovely comments here and I'm looking forward to seeing all your seashell paintings.
It is true it is hard to find the words sometimes but I'm amazed at how positive everyone manages to be and how nice. The encouragement does help you keep going when you get frustrated because what you had in mind doesn't actually make it to the canvas. I love it when people help me see the bits I've missed and let me know what works.
I also love seeing other people's interpretations and watching their painting getting better and better. It's part of Paintbasket addiction.

Post by: nolan on August 18, 2012, 01:44:49 AM
I think you do a marvelous job with the classes Karen.

As far as the detail is concerned  - it all depends on the amount of time you spend working on that detail, refining edges and adding those extra little details. I tend to like detailed paintings, but it all takes time and careful observation (and that comes with practice)
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: Rkymtnmary on August 31, 2012, 12:59:50 AM
And that's about the size of it...!

Complete with surgically excised shell...and very poor lighting...the "wet" sand really is much darker but I'm as good with the camera as I am with computers!

The software is a Photoshop program. Not even sure of the version as yet. Will have to sit down, stick the disc in, listen to the whirlygigs, watch the screen flash....and that's where my expertise ends!  I'm actually hoping it's a self-loader.   :whistle:

I can see the photo doesn't do the painting justice, you have done a great job with this painting Mary  :clap:
The sea sand effect and the foam and the shells, etc., are all very well executed.
Next time though leave yourself a bit more room between the foam and it's shadow. That will show more height in the water O0 What you can do now is to extend the existing shadows by fading them out slower. That will have the same effect O0

I think you did an awesome job, Mel...particularly your stones...I struggled a great deal with them but yours look as real as could be...maybe all you need for the foam is the little white wispy bits but I caution you...do NOT go by me...lol...I think you did great!  :clap:

Post by: NHC50 on September 08, 2012, 12:34:03 AM
Mel I give you kudos for doing this. I haven't done it yet. As far as I can see it does not look bad. Maybe the foam is to thick, or there needs to be more distance between the foam and shadow. Wait and see what Nolan says.
Give yourself a pat on the back. It will get better.  O0 O0 :clap: :clap:

Great job Mel, love the sand texture and the shells and stones.  :clap:

What is bothering you about the foam is not the amount, you do get times when there is a lot of foam, what is bothering is that there are none of the small fly out bits of foam, at the moment you have the large areas sorted, so just add the smaller bits in and it will look natural O0

hi nolan
 oh i have spent hours today trying to get the templates enlarged, which i did succeed at!!! what i did was enlarge each photo to a5 size so they could fit onto my a3 canvas, so i was very excited until i looked at it and realized the shapes r all wrong. question: do i have to pick out the shells only and enlarge them till they fit the right placement size?. i am starting to think i might just freehand draw them onto canvas ???

The shadow you have added to the large bottom right hand shell makes it look as though it is worn out and has a hole now, which although different from the original, work well and adds extra character to the painting. I also like that you were no scared to add a few shells of your own  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Post by: nolan on April 16, 2013, 08:51:29 PM
I do show how to do it in the class, but you will basically need to wait until the shell is dry, then use a neutral black (mixed with the 3 primaries) to dry brush the shading onto the shell O0
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: nolan on April 16, 2013, 08:54:38 PM
I don't bother about whether the colour is opaque or transparent - the layer you put down to get the shell shading is so thin that the colour becomes transparent O0

I am happy with your water colour as it will depend  / change with the light

Post by: MaryAnne Long on June 19, 2013, 02:41:14 PM
Bhavna,

Wonderful job on the seashells and sea foam.

My only suggestion would be to make the seafoam come onto the beach not in such a straight line.  That big shell under the foam would have caused the water to ripple there, causing it to flow around it somewhat, I think.

Your success makes me want to try something similar.

 :thankyou: Nina, Germa, Lyn, Val and Nolan. Lyn I used mostly a similar brush as Nolan did but for the real fine sand I went out and bought a denture toothbrush as I liked the bristles. I seemed to have more control with that. Mind you I did have to wipe the wall down afterwards.  :2funny: I used the colours at random so I did not do them in layers. :painting:

Hi
I was wondering if the same  splattering principle can be applied to a sandy beach thats further away not so close up (i.e., thicker paint = smaller grains of sand) if I am painting a painting with sand thats further away can I get the same sand effect using the splattering technique and maybe just use three tonal values instead of five or six?  Any suggestions appreciated.   :)
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: ImBatman on October 20, 2013, 04:21:26 AM
Katie

I guess it depends on the distance you are indicating in your painting.

If the distance top to bottom of the painting indicates a couple of metres on the beach, then detail would be fine, but the further the distance you are showing (ie say 500 metres down the beach) then the detail isn't necessary.

Post by: nolan on October 21, 2013, 07:29:59 PM
you bet, I do it all the time. Just remember also the to adjust the size of the splatter to compensate for the distance - smaller splatter the further away etc. otherwise you end up with huge round rocks in the distance ;D
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: Katiew on October 28, 2013, 06:31:51 PM
Hi there
When painting foam onto wet sand on the beach but its not close up like the seashell painting instead, the sand is say 20-50-100mtres away

A/ do I use the same foam brushing technique as close up?

B/ What size brush at this distance?

C/ Do I still paint in a shadow line first even at this distance or should I just add some shadows after?


 :thankyou:
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: nolan on October 28, 2013, 09:11:39 PM
at that distance, all you will see is pretty flat colour and no detail

you can still paint the shadow first, I find it easier to do that. then look for the leading edge of the foam, it will be slightly darker than the main (top / flat) body of foam. That shows the height of the foam.

If you are painting flat foam that is just lying on the beach (not rolling in) then it won't have a leading edge, so just drag it in with a bristle brush

The brush size will depend on the area you need to cover and the size of the canvas.

Hi there
My speckled sand (small speckles done with  a toothbrush) is about 20-50 metres away (perspective is slightly looking down onto the beach) - it is looking too clean.

Any suggestions appreciated

Thanks Val, I will try and get it posted  :whistle:

I'm practicing my tones by painting a monochromatic painting.

Not long after my post, I reversed the clean lines in the foam and brightness of my sand probably by going too far the other way now-  ::)   

Also I probably shouldnt be trying to do this at night under the wrong light.  :sweat:.

ok. Thank you. I'm unsure whether the sea (behind the foam and near horizen) is finished or not regarding reflections?
My idea is to do an overhanging pohutakawa tree using a textured gel and colouring the foliage with green and red.

I'm hoping its going to go ok. :sweat:

Hi Nolan,
I put it on the wall just to take a photo of it to post in here....so is yet to be hung up  :)

That painting was my second attempt at that scene - I painted my first one and completely destroyed it when I painted the foam over it -  :'( it was awful. 

So I started all over again (after feeling like giving up !) then took your advice in the tutorial about foam practice, so when I got to the foam bit I practised on a seperate canvas until I felt slightly more confident.

 I feel I learnt so much in this tutorial but I found it really challenging....Is this generally quite a hard painting to do??

Since I’m leaving for PV in 2 weeks, I thought I’d paint this for our condo down there! It’s only 8x10 since that’s easy to travel with. If it we’re larger I could have done those bubbles inside of the shell. Just couldn’t control my brush enough for that tiny space. Anyway, hopefully it will be dry by the time I leave!! Any changes suggested???

Post by: MaryAnne Long on June 01, 2018, 03:47:52 PM
Sharon,

I always make a practice when I start to go back and view what everyone else has done - and, most importantly, the suggestions made.

Here's one from Nolan: Next time though leave yourself a bit more room between the foam and its shadow. That will show more height in the water.  What you can do now is to extend the existing shadows by fading them out slower. That will have the same effect

And, he made a suggestion to show more shadow for the bigger shell on the far right, to give it more height above the sand.

Hope those help.  Although with a small painting, it is more difficult.

You did a good job.  Sea foam is not easy.
Title: Re: 21 - Seashells on the Beach
Post by: Sacgal/Sharon on June 01, 2018, 05:59:52 PM

Thanks, Val! Can't wait to get back to Mismaloya and take photos of similar scenes for a future painting!!

It looks good Sharon. I always find small paintings harder to do than large.

Thanks Zilpa. And since these are practice pieces I figure it’s better to use small canvas which are easier to store or give away. But I will try a larger canvas soon!!

Great job Sharon... This is another lesson Ill have to try... I haven't found this one yet. Always wanted to paint shells on the beach. I've been collecting reference photos on this subject for years... Don't know why I didn't think to check PB's Online classes for inspiration :idiot2:

I loved doing this one!  :smitten: I collect shells (and fossils) and used one of my collection to add to the scene.
No doubt that I will make a huge strip of beach using this as inspiration now that I've learned the techniques ... it'll look wonderfully holiday-like... And hearing the story in the video I'm now determined to visit NZ one day!  :)

On the photo - at least on my computer - the colour comes out a bit more red than it is in reality.

You have done a great job with this painting :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: I really like how nice and shiny your stone is too :heeha:

Please do more of your own version using your own shells and fossils, that would look awesome :gl:
