Sea, Sun and Sand

Another painting, this the second of two (the same) I did a few weeks ago. Again, from a Will Kemp tutorial.

I did two because I wasn't happy with number one, but I'm not very happy with two either! (and this is why I debated whether to "publish" or not). In the end, why not?

It's a bit flat and unexciting, athough it is meant to be "painterly" i.e. not concerned with obsessing over fine detail etc. Maybe version three would be better but I lost interest in painting it! I never quite got the colours right (the oranges and pinks).

I've decided to try my hand at one of Kemp's paid lessons, so we'll see how that goes.

After doing this I did actually paint a little picture I'm very happy with. I won't display it here (yet) because it's to be a Christmas present. But painting something you really like is very satisfying.
