Undersea, step 2



In step 2 I'm beginning to define the undersea elements; the shells, rocks and coral shapes. I've also found some jelly fish shapes that I will try to use to make some more interesting shapes besides the turtles that are beginning to show up. I think the colors are very pleasing and I am going at it slowly. I love this part of the painting, doing the negative shapes and making the subjects come alive. At least that is what I hope to do. I'm finding little fish peeking out behind coral and others in the light area. I'm really enjoying this process.

Wave Boarders

Wave-boarders 5x7


While at Daytona Beach with the grandchildren this week end I got my little paint box out and painted some wave scenes. The kids were having such fun with their wave boards riding the waves into the shore. I painted this little scene for them to take home as a souvenir. They are the two on the left. There were a lot of kids out there in that cold water; at least to me 65 degrees is too cold to swim in but they didn't seem to mind. The day was partly sunny, but perfect for beaching.
