My First Beach Scene Attempt

My First Beach Scene Attempt

I offered to do a painting as a wedding present and the request was a beach scene. After quietly freaking out (I'd never painted water,sand etc before) I turned to our trusty friend Mark and his fantastic Beachscape Tutorials Part 1 & 2. What a god send and so well taught Mark, I learnt so much. I also really enjoy and appreciate your humour and generosity in sharing your skills. I ended up redoing the sky twice and the water three times before I was satisfied....yes, I'm a perfectionist too. Having grown up in the Byron Shire, I took lots of reference photos of pandanus, rocks and seagulls along the beaches, to incorporate these into the painting. I also took some inspo from a photo I found on a royalty free site to help with the composition. I'm very proud of this first attempt into seascapes and I loved learning while creating this painting. It's 60cm x 80cm acrylic on canvas using Atelier Interactive of course. I'm so pleased that the recipients love it to.

Great composition NEW
by: Pauline uk

Loved the calm nature of your composition.
Also the way your eye is led through the rocks to the break in the waves and beyond. I'm glad for you that the recipients loved and will always cherish it. Well done, the struggle is always worth it.
