Re: Smoky Beach Day

That large, quiet sky is a nice contrast to the activity on the ground, Dan. Beautiful interpretation of the day! Hopefully those fires are under control now.

Re: Smoky Beach Day

Once again, you've made lemonade out of lemons! I agree with Donna.

Re: Smoky Beach Day

I love the colors you added to the beach, and your hordes of people are very convincing. Beautiful painting with such an air of festivity!

Re: Smoky Beach Day

Great beach scene Dan, and your interpretation is so much more pleasing to the eye than the reality of the scene, especially with a smoke filled, hazy sky...

Re: Smoky Beach Day

I like this a lot. Beaches here in NJ are all sand, no rocks. Interesting to see your photo. I get the sense that you really enjoyed painting this and had fun with colors. Pam
