This is from a photograph I took on vacation in North Carolina (OBX). I originally wanted to enlarge the photo but my wife suggested I paint it. It's 18 X 24 on canvas (my largest yet). C&C welcome. Thanks for looking.

the colors are beautiful but what I like the best is the almost abstract way you had to depict the figures and wood!

I love the silhouettes and their reflections. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the way they blended in with the distant shore line, but the more I look at it the more I like it. The tension of the lost figures is delightfully resolved in the reflections. :thumbsup:

Tim this is very striking. I love silhouettes in front of sunsets. Well done.

Tim. This is a wonderful painting. The figures are not at all stilted or stiff and blend beautifully with the distant shore yet are still identifiable. Well done.

Im a big fan of silhouette type paintings and this one is REALLY cool. Im not crazy about the curve in the sky but it doesnt distract from the overall picture
