Day on the beach


Lovely and I like the addition of the figures

It may not be quite how you intended but it is still very good indeed! It has a lovely atmospheric feeling about it!

I think you have captured the mood of that moment very well Michael.

I am not sure what you intended but this looks job done to me. Excellent.

I think it a really good painting, intended or not it is certainly a beautiful painting and painted particularly well.

Lovely, like the light on the figures

A lovely, loose, beach scene Michael.

This is a lovely watercolour, Michael and beautifully painted! ( we are our own worst critics!)

Heather, David, Chris, David, Paul, Romila, Carole & Ann. Thank you all so much …. and Anne you are so right!

I think it looks great.

This works well - good perspective, nice colour balance, the figures add interest

A terrific scene beautifully painted Michael. Love the palette, it glows with sunshine.

Denise, Colin & Fiona. Pleased you like it and thanks for those nice comments. I must practice some more rocks ….. not entirely satisfied but are we ever!

This is a lovely watercolour Michael, and describes that sense of freedom we feel at the seaside, especially on an uncrowded beach as you have painted.

Thank you Tessa. I’m pleased it evokes that sense of freedom on a quiet beach - just where I would like to be today!

Well, I think it's so successful...never mind what you'd 'intended' you so rightly say, are they ever!!! It's great!!

Thalia - thank you so much. You have almost convinced me 😊.

Based on a demo by Hazel Soan in 'The Artist' magazine. Not quite how I intended (are they ever?) but could be worse!
