Hi everyone!
Had trouble connecting to WC! this pm, but success at last!!!!!! :mad:
Acrylic, 2hrs, 7x10ins - had fun! :)
Lovely pics - hard choice but liked this and thought acrylics would be quick.
No time to look at others yet but will be back later.
I see it's scanned darker than IRL - colours should be brighter and there are a lot more greens in the tree than appear here! Honestly! :p

I see the greens! This one looks ready for a frame- it's really lovely! :clap:

Really lovely !!!!!!!!!!!!! I like those touches of light on the land area . Beautiful sky and tree and water too :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

A popular image, and no wonder. This rendition is very quiet even with the warm colors.

Even more beautiful than the photograph ! :clap: :clap:

Hi, Maureen. You've done a painting that's good in every aspect. That isn't easy to do. The sky glows with color...the light lavander water is amazing...the tree foliage is very natural looking ( love the sky holes)...the beach is textured and varied in color...the figures appear relaxed and real. :clap: :clap: :clap:

after awhile I seem to run out of adjectives
this is great .ditto what Deano said

If the colors are brighter IRL then I'm absolutely sure that this is gorgeous. Way to go! :clap: :clap:

Maureen this is absolutely exquisite. I absolutely LOVE everything about it. Beautiful sky colors, your people are great, your tree and sand marvelous. This is just really really great. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I agree with all here, super painting! The sky is glowing, the tree is just right, I love the glints of light on the beach and the water lapping onto shore.

I also love this. It's so atmospheric! :clap:

Gosh! I'm blushing to the roots of my once-red hair!!!!!!!! :o
Thank you so much for your exceedingly generous comments - I'd like to thank you individually but, at the moment, dinner calls - plus a phone call to my beautiful niece who has just received her degree results, which are very good - so we're all immensely proud! :D

Beautiful work! So polished looking and yet has a spontaneous feel to it, too! Great colors!

Thank you sooz - much appreciated! :)

Maureen, this is such eye-candy !! I really love the gently illuminated sides of the figures as the final sunlight retreats, and I swear I can actually hear the gentle lapping of those waves on the lakeshore. My monitor shows lots of nice greens on the tree too. A bang-up good job ! I hope you're well chuffed :clap: :clap: :clap:

I really like your interpretation of this photo. Your sunset sky is lovely and I can almost hear the waves lapping on the beach (I had real problems painting those!). I like the way the colours all work together to unify the whole painting. :clap: :clap:

Ahhhhh! Just lovely Maureen!! I love ....well everything! The water is awesome and so is the sky.....the tree is great and I can see green in....your people are really good! Well done! :clap: :clap: :clap:
