Fascination of the sea

by Audrey
(Brittany, France)

Acrylic on Canvas 46 x 55cm


Still trying to work with water colours but failing, so it's back to acrylics.
I found this poster on the web of a photo by Missie Jenkins. I liked the subject - I seem to be drawn to the sea and I'm trying to use more subtle colours.
The waves were challenging and so were the children's clothes.
Back to practising water colours now!
Thanks for the tips on using tooth picks.

Hi Audrey:
Very pleasant painting. Love the muted colours and blending.......the off center figures (focal point)in the foreground are very well placed and defined, allowing the background to suggest space and distance.

like this but only comment-i would have liked the sky to be a different colour so that the water is shown more prominent.
