i have this one in oil but put it in the water colour about a month ago by mistake.
Nolan  I have a question for you.
Is it looking too much like yours to be able to sell.

Nice work, Danielle

Shouldn't the water be darker in the front and lighter toward the horizon?

This strikes me as the water up close to the beach is quite shallow giving the lighter colour, possibly a deep drop off accounting for the darker water in the distance.

Very nicely done Danielle.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:

OK, Val, that makes sense.

Art is like the English language with exceptions to every rule.

What actually happens is that the light rays penetrate the deep water and have nothing to cause it to be reflected upwards again. However, in the shallower water the rays reflect the colour upwards from the ground surface. Because of the slope of the beach, the farther out, the less light is reflected and so appears darker and darker. Hope this helps. O0

looks great Danielle and see no problem with selling this one as it is a very generic scene with no identifiable items O0
