View Full Version : A favorite visitors spot

Well here I am with another oil on paper. I'm afraid I'm wearing out on painting on paper. Even though the paper is treated, it still absorbs the paint. It has a complete different feel from panting on canvas. I'm use to scrubbing, wiping or what ever to the pant on canvas, and that is very limited with paper. This is a 9x12" painting of one of the favorite tourist spots here on the islands. Yax

I would love to lie on that beach and read a good book. This sure evokes a summer feeling.
By the way, I just finished "Reading Lolita in Teran" I highly recommend it.

I want the chair next to Judy. I can feel that breeze and smell the salt air. You've really captured the moment with this one.

Hi Yax,
You have captured the atmosphere in this, you can almost feel the warmth and humidity. It very much reminds me of Bali and areas near Legian Beach. Well done.

Hi Bobbo, No, this was done in my studio. I'm on my way this morning to do some plein air painting. It looks like a great day for it. Yax

I thought this was a watercolour. I am amazed that oil looks this good on paper.

I have 1 small crit. The middle tree's lower branch does not appear to be attached to anything. This is an easy fix. Oh and it may look better in real life... so disregard this comment if it does.

funny, the one I did on paper(acrylic) was a scene like this too..I liked working smooth, but now that I use a knife, canvas is better..
I recognise the work in the shadows and the fronds, I really remember vivdly trying to capture these things..
I like that you've got figures in there..umbrellas maybe look a tad small in comparison?
amyway, reminds me of Tropical North Aussie..lovely!! :clap: :clap:
