Alone with her thoughts

I saw this young lady paddling along the shore totally alone carrying her shoes. I wonder what she was thinking, we will never know..... nor should we. 10” x 9” oil on board. C & C Welcome.

Re: Alone with her thoughts

this is charming. I like how well you have captured the glare of sunlight on the water, and how that frames the figure. Such bold colors and lovely textural brushwork. Your edges are great.

Excellent use of color, in all areas: the sand, sea and sky/clouds look beautiful.

Not a fan of the gesso texture, but to each his/her own.

Re: Alone with her thoughts

Many thanks to AllisonR, Alan P, and Carol for your comments.

Alan P. ....I think the board texture shows more in the photo than it does in real life. I like to paint on some texture, it helps me loosen up. As you say each their own.

Alan: very nice. I think you can achieve the looseness without the gesso texture.
Lovely painting.
