The Rocky Shore

Pastel 5x7" on Black Canson Paper

Finally another painting.
I'm working hard on getting ocean water and my rocks to look as I intend them too. This one sat unfinished on my painting easil for a week while my computer was rebuilt. All my reference photos are of course....on my computer. This painting I decided to have the sunlight at a low point to the side. I was trying to get more colors into a very boring ref. photo to liven it up. I am scouring all my ocean photos for the next attempt.

  1. WOW BETSY, this is great. I love what you´ve done with the waves and the colours. I can see you´ve worked hard. Congratulations!

  2. Betsy, the turbulence and movement is incredible! You definitely livened it up dramatically.
