I'm wondering about the water and possibly the large open space in the lower right. Should I add something there?<br> Any other comments more than welcome.

it looks great, i do think it is a bit empty...maybe some pebbles or some uneven sand ..or something
but it looks really amazing

I recall the beaches on the islands off south Georgia. No pepples. Just pure and soft sand, albeit, hot sometimes. I like the way you captured the energy of the sea. Good contrast on the girl walking on the left. Interesting how you made a definite cutoff between the water and the sand with the dark line. I like dark lines. I think you did well on the reflection on the wet sand as well.

I like this! The edge along the water is really nice. The reflections and the shadows are executed superbly and I like how the waves do not draw too much attention away from the subject.

If I had to change anything I would make the bottom a bit warmer and make the top a little a darker. I think that subtle gradients in a piece can help so much. Maybe something like this?

Thats neat freeskier, the idea works well and very believable. either way it is a very wonderful and exciting painting.I would probably of said something like add a sharks fin or something like that.The only other thing is footsteps in the sand getting smothered by the waves. Well done again Flint I'm going to have to go to the beach side and paint a bit to......john

Another good one, I especially like how you handled the beach and the reflections coming off it.

I like the reflections, and the posture of the body that clearly indicates impatience.

the person on the left isnt entirely accurate (realistic)...but the water and beach are well painted...I especially like the way you handled the ocean water

You painted the water beautifully. I like how you captured the emotion of your grand daughter in the water. She looks like she is having so much fun!
