Nice job, Danielle! I really enjoyed painting this scene, too...Enjoy your lunch, Dennis - it's too cold in Sacramento today to do much outdoors!
Cheers,
Sharon

Danielle,

I like this peaceful scene.   I like the way you made the beach roll out to meet the water - looks so natural.  Same for the water slowly streaming in from the ocean.

Hi this is my first post, I have only dabbled in a little bit of painting, acrylic's but really wanted to give Watercolours a try.  I was really pleased to find this website, loved the Cosmos lesson (will post that when I have had another go).  I decided to skip to lesson 84 as the Pohutakawa season has finished in NZ.  Apologies for the quality of the photo.   :)

Welcome to PB,

I have never tried watercolor, so I cannot even begin to critique; however I do like the theme of the painting.  I especially like the pop of red against the lighter background.
