I had a look at your homepage and posted thread in WC!, and it looks like you went for a more loosy style than usual, didn't you?

Well, as a matter of fact, I like it !

Hi aaasp,
Very nice piece, the cool palette broken by the warmth of Ellie and the dogs is very effective in bringing attention to the focal point. Really nice soft atmosphere, definitely a work to dwell on and loose yourself in.

Beautiful painting that makes me smile! I love the cool blues and feeling in this work.

I especially like the way you showed Ellie's shirt billowing out in the wind.
I can't tell what's in her right hand, but it really doesn't matter. This is a nice shot of a day at the beach.

Beautiful picture which really captures the spirit of a day on the beach with the shirt billowing in the wind and the dogs chasing through the surf. The limited pallette works really well.

Thank you all for your stimulating comments. I'm off into NO cyberspace for a few weeks but promise to come back, contribute and comment also on some of the great stuff I've seen in this forum!

Having fun with the dogs at the ocean. Beautiful, as usual. You do capture feeling in your portraits.
