Here is my challenge painting, and this was challenging.  Water, sky, sand, tree...all a challenge for me.

Really lovely rendition, Mary Lou. You've captured the calm scene very well!

Mary Lou

This is a great painting.  Love the big palm trunk.  (I am absorbed with tree trunks at the moment - love them.)

Love the little boat, too.

Hello everyone! So i painted a "tight" and "loose" version of this scene and for the hell of it i will post the loose, fun version. Truth be told the amount of time taken was pretty much the same for both paintings although you probably wouldnt think so  :2funny:


Take care...

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  I was wondering when it would be posted for I saw it in the gallery Trev but for the longest time, it didn't appear in the Challenge forum. Anyway lovely to see your take on doing it loose.

Trev, your loose painting is wonderful!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Val, for the sand I used a very light wash of raw umber and I may have mixed in a tiny bit of Van Dyke brown, really not too sure as I have a bad short term memory... :crazy2: I know the darker edge of the sand is Van Dyke brown and I am pretty sure I washed a bit of it over the sand.

Thank you Teresa.
