My first Beach Scene Ever!

Rest

Rest

I spent years in illness on every level. I tried painting with acrylics years ago, but felt very sick around it physically so it did not go far.


I recently got inspired through MARK! and thought I should give it a go again. I am not certain I am AOK physically yet, but I did not get sick like I used to. :) This painting is my first beach scene inspire by Mark's Pandanas Tree paintings. Love his work!

Enjoy! Blessings to you all.

I titled this painting REST. I am basically a fruitarian so I got me some of those lovely fruits which I have never tried yet. :P

Hi Tom, trust me I get all these emotions too! It hurts!!! You should see me pasting back and forth. Running out the door for no reason and getting on my scooter to go no where. Than coming back in and back at it again for about 2 minutes and than Oh I have to do this or do that. The anxiety and fear has been great but I find myself sticking about longer and longer. :) :P

Rest.
by: tom-paul jagg

Kathryn, You did great!!! I too get sick, just of a different kind when I paint, I get frustrated, angry, happy, silly with mental meltdowns. Your sic is physical, mines psychological, but I do empathize with you. Painting takes me out of my comfort zone and that actually is a good thing cause it pushes my limits to crazy. Thats good... I think. A BIG congratulations to you Kathryn on your perseverance kido, you did great for getting back on the horse despite your past. Guess there's no looking back now. ';~), tpj

THANKS Jane! :)
by: Kathryn

I think It worked with the distance because of the light that I also placed in the water back near the sky? Try that and see what happens. Light pushes back and darker come's forward I have learned.

I will be posting soon a study I did of one of Marks paintings!! so stay tuned. :)

Great sense of distance
by: Jane (from UK)

Hi Kathryn ... I'm really envious! You've achieved such a sense of distance in both the ocean and sky, which is something I really struggle with. The horizon really looks a long way away!

Hope your health continues to improve - I've just had a minor health issue with a shoulder operation. As a result I have been painting with my "wrong" had and I can tell you that I won't be posting the results up here.

Look forward to seeing more posts.

Mixed up tree :)

LOL, I think this poor tree is mixed up. It is a cross between a white birch tree and a pandana. :D
