Seaside - now completed at post #27

Im not a lover of Seascapes, but I live with these scenes all around me. I did this mainly as a quickie to use an old frame and to add to my Market Collection.

Personally I find them boring....... Is this Boring?????

Any suggestions to liven it up...

Acrylic on Corflute Board, 40x30cms

Re: Seaside

I was considering some seagulls, but just might sign it and frame now.
Soos and Bhavan, Thank You both for your comments and appreciation

Re: Seaside

I don't think it is boring either. I love those foreground grasses by the way.
A seagull or two would not be a bad idea but I would make them very small and just over the sea in the distance.

Re: Seaside

Yes a very peaceful scene! But I must agree that perhaps a couple of boats/birds flying might balance it out just a bit. Beautiful colors.

Re: Seaside

The consensus seems to be it needs something - your choice though. Just go for it

Re: Seaside

Lovely Megs, I think a bird or two like a seagull flying or a small sailboat.
very serene!

Meggs......since you are adding this to your 'market collection', a little marketing advice......people really like sailboats, they sell well......

A nude female beachcomber walking by would perk it up.

Re: Seaside

Thanks All for your appreciation and suggestions...
I have decided to go with a sail boat and birds as is the general thought...

Raymo, funny your suggestion, Your not the only one who made it... but unfortunately nude bathing and sunbaking here is NOW considered breaking the law, and IM such an , I wouldnt dream of it.

Blue your a darling (notice today I like you, tomorrow well who knows )

Hope to get to it tonight and will repost later.
