I manged to fit in some painting on the Middle Cove pix that is WAY overdue....A good start has been gotten...I actually have a little bit more done now than what this photo shows, but so far I am pleased.....the beach rocks are next. These may be a challenge for me...not because they are hard, but the obsessive part of me will have a hard time with so much detail. I love detail but I have to be careful not to get too carried away in the painting. I have to remember to step back often and view the entire painting in perspective. That is always a good practice and I have to remind myself sometimes to do that.
Here is the first stage.....sky and ocean complete....the lighting wasn't very good, so you can't quite get the yellows and pinks in the sky. Maybe next photo will have more natural lighting.
