Sea Watch -daily painting, beach scene

5x7 oil on masonite panel. this is painted from the challenge photo posted over at Karin Jurick's inspiration site . Of course I couldnt resist this one - in fact I did 3! This is the kind of photo I love - people doing their thing - Often I get asked to paint from someones photos but they usually are the kids staring at the camera. No interest in that at all - these kind of shots are what grab me. btw - added the bird in honor of our Ospreys that have just returned to town! Spring is officially here.

I like your colors and brushwork and agree, that this type of photo has many different painings in it. Nice work.

I like it!!!! Your choice of colors is really good. OK, so where are the other two paintings? :-) I agree about those "family photos" either everybody is staring into the camera or there is a mass of backsides! Candid shots are SO hard.
