Well....school holidays are here, and of course Christmas is less than 2 weeks away, so unfortunately I haven't been able to paint as much as I'd like...so I thought I'd 'post' a 'work in progress'.
This is a large artwork, oil on stretched canvas - 91 x 122cm.
Back in September I spent a week at Kings Beach on the Sunshine Coast. I took my sketch pad and did a bit of drawing while my kids were 'yahooing' on the beach. It was interesting observing all the different ages and groups of people all socialising 'at the beach'. I'm trying to convey that in my painting....'Beach Life'. I've still got alot of work ahead of me. I'm still not sure about some of the sizing of the figures in the distance and I'm also not really sure if it's all going to come together and work... but I will be able judge better when I complete more of the background, water and figures.
