Another Seashore Attempt!
The sands of time
I'm still trying to capture the lovely clear inshore water that Mark creates so easily.
I painted the beach and originally I put wading birds along the shoreline, but they just looked unreal and somewhat boring ... so I painted them out and spent a few weeks just pondering what to do to finish it.
Finally I happened to see a young couple scribing their names together on a beach and came up with the "I love you" words ... but I'm not sure whether it's a bit cheesy or too much of a cliche? What do you think?
Frankie - I still can't get the transparency of Mark's water ... am I putting too many layers of paint on? Any ideas or comments?
