View Full Version : Blowing Rocks

Blowing Rocks park. During rough weather the ocean goes through the holes in the rocks and shoots high into the air. I have an osprey and a blue heron in the painting. Its 3 x 4 feet. Oil, painting knife, on masonite. The birds were painted with a brush. Lorijo

Very nice. I really like the surf and the way you eroded the shoreline. Hope you post some more

Great wave, Lori. I love the way the osprey is positioned against the pink of the sky.

This is beautiful Lorijo!
At 3' x 4' I imagine this is quite impressive when one is standing in front of it.
Excellent job on the waves, I can almost hear them.
I also like the composition and where you have positioned the birds.

I'm impressed. Very simple but very effective composition.

Thanks Carol, Jamie, Linda and AJ. I made some little bird cutouts and taped them to the painting and ran back and forth till I got them in the right spot. :D They were flying all over! Lorijo

Well, this new forum is already really kicking along with amazingly high standard work. This is another wonderful work, the sky is sensational in both form and colour. You got the bird exactly right! I love the compostion on this, the cool green on the left receding to a blue dominant right. You have just taken a little slice of nature and improved on it!
what a beautiful painting!! :clap: :clap:
you have executed it masterfully..your water is so WET!:D
lovely comp, and interesting sky..
