.... sorry, not a very imaginative title :)

.... just a quickie as always.... as 9 x 12" .... and pastels is such a quick, fast medium to work in ...... few hours last night .... I wanted the sun bright, is it too bright? .....

:music: are you kidding....I've been on that beach and this one makes me want to go back. Just discovered this forum for us water lovers. The sun is just the right temperature.

Hi there DS, I like the way you've handled the sun shape, better than a round coin shape. Its light bounces nicely across wave tops and sand towards the viewer. If that's cobalt and perinone orange they do go very well together, I've used them myself. Nice work.

Beatiful. a few hours. I am so jealous. The sun is great. Warm and bright. And no, not too bright.

Very well done...one thing, which is the focal point the wave of the setting sun?? They are competing for my attention ,I think you need to choose...:)

thank you Julia, and 1cham ..... cham I dont know either, Ill let you choose ;) :D
My eye first goes to the lightest part .... the sun, then to the wave... then the foreshore, then back to the sun, and then wanders round the clouds...... and the process repeats.....
......perhaps its a bit distracting, dunno lol .... perhaps I have 'wandering eye trouble' :)
