A Day at the Beach

by Marilyn
(Canada)

I call this A Day at the Beach. This was painted with Windsor and Newton student paints and it was done on 10x12 Cold Press paper by Strathmore. It was my first attempt at adding people to a painting. I would appreciate your comments on it. Thank you.

Figures
by: Dorothy , Carluke

Hi Marilyn,

I like the sky in your painting. A little tip for drawing distant figures is to make little carrot shapes. It works a treat and is better than fiddling around putting in minute limbs.

Regards,

Dorothy

I HATE THE BEACH
by: OWEN JONES

Hi Marilyn,

Yes, I'm in Australia, but I hate the beach, but this is a good painting, but I would have painted over the guy on the far right, as he makes the others look smaller. But the rest is fine. Cheers Owen.

I had forgotten to add that this was a painting I had found in an art book, learn to draw and paint.
