Finished! ūüėÄ

imageThis one was a pleasure to paint from beginning to end. ¬†Originally I drew this scene in pulled way back so you could see 2 surfers as well, and the girls and wave were pretty small. ¬†I redrew it way closer up. ¬†I felt intimidated by the wave and water at first because I haven’t painted a wave before. ¬†I started by blocking in the green part of the wave and then everything fell into place. ¬†I love the wave and the gestures of the cute and super innocent looking little girls. ¬†I’m sure I’ll be on to another beach scene soon. ¬†Have a great day!!


Progress on the wave


Here’s where I’m at today. ¬†I blocked in basic skin tones with mainly 2 values of light and dark. ¬†I also worked some on the foamy water that the girls are standing in. When I paint in their swimsuits and the little hand trowel in the little ones hand I will have paint all over the whole thing. ¬†Then I can fine tune all of it. ¬†I like the way the wave looks.


Playing on the Beach

imageHere is the start of my new painting, I have finally drawn it in. ¬†It’s of two little girls playing on the beach in Santa Cruz in front of a beautiful wave. ¬†I’m looking forward to painting it. ¬†The colors of the wave are out of this world, hopefully I’ll be able to bring it all to life. ¬†Here’s to hoping and trying!
