View Full Version : WDE 3rd March Coconut seller and beach shacks

Thanks for hosting Li, I was attracted to the shacks because of the colours and reflections, it did not turn out how I intended but I am quite pleased with it anyway. It is acrylic on paper measuring 13 x 10.5 inches and took about an hour and a half
I started with the coconut seller and he happened quite quickly, I used very water acrylic on canvas measures 16 x 12 inches and took about 40 minutes
Thanks for looking, all C and C welcome.

These are both fantastic Christine! Your use of color is so dynamic and harmonious. I love the river shacks. You should be pleased. Your strokes are so fresh and full of energy, really brings it to life. So happy to see coconut man. You caught his intense but gentle look. Love them both!

Ditto what Li said. I especially love the yellow shack - yellow is perfect and love the roof. I always look forward to seeing your art.

Lovely paintings, so sunny. The waterside huts are full of reflections and sparkling highlights. The portrait is good, too, and I love his hat!
