I did this for a project in my group:)

Painted in Painter8.

I Love this. The way the red stands out is striking, and having the hair stand out also does not make the bucket the focus. The almost duochrome format works great here!

Ooooooooooh yeah. Lovely pic. I like the simplicity of the strokes to go with the simple message....that I should be on the beach.

Really nice.

Gloria, this painting has a very calming effect. You have a way of making everyday situations feel like wonderful slices of time. Beautifully done Gloria.

I like the simplicity of this - nice and cool. The sand's a funny colour though??

The desaturated colors give the painting a nastalgic feel, and you've chosen your highlights really effectively - nice :D

Yeah, what Jcoop said. He's a poet and doesn't even know it.

I find it annoying when people talk in rhyme,
Where do people find the time?
Just saying what you think will be fine,
Or maybe you are trying to give us a sign.
Your poems will never make a dime,
Sigh..but I guess niether will mine :evil:

Heheheheheh :p

I liked the colors and the subject. I would soften a bit (a tiny bit) the color of the mouth and eyelashes.

If i were you i would try to do the same thing but in oils and knife , it deserves it... :) :)

It is with deepest sorrow,
And a head hanging low,

That I show my regret,
for posting a words that rhymed in a set.

Nevermore shall I put forth a poem,
In our most humble digital forum

Thank you for all the very nice comments on the Beach Boy:)

Yako, I see what you mean about the mouth, I will go back and use a more muted color, and thanks for spotting it.

gloria, you make this look so easy...how long does it take you to do one of these? what size do you work at? just curious. i can't add anything that hasn't already been said...this is just great.

please....somebody make michael stop.

Thank you for asking Manda,

I did this one at 800x800 only because it was for a group project.. usually I paint a larger canvas. Also I use 400 dpi, in case I really take a huge liking to it and want to have it printed, lol

Some of these paintngs go very quickly........sort of just flow... those are the ones that turn out best. Seems like when I stumble there is always something off kilter. ( I don't post those, lol).

This particular little boy was done in a day, working on and off . Probably a total of about 3 or 4 hrs:)
