I tried posting this about a week ago-- it was there for a couple hours, then poof, gone! Anyway here it is again, my granddaughter on the beach in Emerald Isle NC. I tried to lend a four-year-old's perspective to the breaking wave, but it ended up looking a little tsunami-like! This is 12X16" acrylic on paper. C&C welcome!

This is great!! Love the motion of the wave and bird, really does give you the feel of it moving. Great depth and colors.

Yes we lost alot of threads/posts from the weekend, WC had some problems with a backup.. there is a thread at the top of our forum page explaining.

Rob. I think it works very well. Love the colours in those waves - also the transparency of the water over the shore. Well done.

Beautiful colours. I think that's how big waves look when your four, well done!

I agree with Deborah that waves look huge to the little kids. I lived near Emerald Beach NC for many years, so thanks for bringing back memories of a great seacoast. Your painting is so beautiful and colorful.

Hi all, thanks for your kind comments!

Kathie- I tried to get lots of action in this, I'm glad that came through! Thanks for your comments!

Chammi- I think the transparent shallows following the surf break is my favorite part to try to paint! Thanks!

Deborah- yes, but that doesn't stop her from trying to swim in them, but only if someone holds her hand! Thanks!

Nan- as someone who lived in the EI area, I hope you noticed the green-blue water that we tend to get there on clear days! Thanks for your comments!
