Small Paintings In Oil
Hi Tammy,I absolutely love this painting... might be my favorite one of yours yet! You did stay loose and the soft colours and composition just make me want to spend a relaxing, quiet day at the beach listening to those waves.
You are too sweet - thanks Nicki
Love it, Tammy.
You stayed very loose with this painting, a lovely interpretation!
Hi TammyThanks so much for the friendship award! What an honor! I will have to give some thought to passing it along.Hope your son is coming along. It is so hard when our kids are sick.I really like the composition in this painting. the figure stands out against the darkness of the fence. So many of us seem to be struggling with staying loose. When I work from photos, or from "plein monitor" as I said before, I try to stay far enough away that I'm not analyzing the details too much. I try to get a sense of the whole rather than its parts. I think that the more time we spend developing a style we are happy with, the more it will come naturally. (I hope, anyway! ha)
Tammy, I really like this one. You got the feel of your niece seriously involved in her sand activities, and the whole painting just works out well.
