On Thursday last week, we painted on St George's Island. The dunes were awesome and the sand was so white it blinded you! This scene is looking thru the dunes across the bay toward the mainland.

Pastel, 14x15 on Wallis

Carly, never been to this place but it reminds me of places in north Florida. I love how you did the sand...it really does look sand baked. Hey, I'm lousy at landscapes so feel totally free to ignore me, but the far line of purple (land?) seems a bit strong and really snags my eye, perhaps more muted? Otherwise it's a lovely scene, I'm sort of in love with the little pine tree...so personable!

This looks so sun-kissed I feel like I need to squint! :cool:
I really like the blues in the shadows & the graceful yet funky trees!
Nice work!

Really like the colors in this pastel, Carly. The bright sand would definitely light up a room. The whole painting is illuminating...great work...Tom

I love this Carly, I'm in awe of your trees, being as how I had such a bad time trying to get my trees to look like trees :D . I love it, says come 'play on the beach' to me :)

Superb!!! Oh look at all those lovely colors you introduced in those grasses and the background and the way you blended the direction of your strokes for power in the piece. And those trees!!!!

Love this !!!!

I think you get a real sense of the place..... and atmosphere..... ....where we have sand dunes, we only have the green grasses, that whip your legs :p ... nothing so pretty as this

This is wonderful, Carly! I love it all...the front with the grasses is super. Super colors too...makes me feel warm and toasty (instead of the rain and cold that is really here!).

:) Beautiful carly, I can feel see and feel the brightness of the light reflecting off the white sand. Love those greens too..

Absolutely sun drenched. Just what you want to see this time of year. I love the shadow colors. Kate

This is just wonderful. Masterful. LOTS of wonderful scintillating colors and yet REAL looking, too, nothing pushed TOO far but just enough. VERY nice, indeed! Wish I HAD a beach to paint nearby! You're so lucky....and WARM, I'll bet! :clap:

Lovely work! I really like those pinks and purples. They tie the whole thing together and beautifully complement the greens and the bright sunlit yellow.
