Sunset Beach by W. Redman by wanred Sunset Beach by W. Redman by wanred
:wave: I had painted this last year about this time for my daughter. This is an oil painting on a 12" x 16" canvas. Sorry about the photo - I still had my crappy little camera then and since she has the painting, I couldn't take a better photo! :)

If I have time to actually paint I definitely will try to get one in for Lynne's contest Renato! I've been working everyday for the last 3 weeks - so I just don't have any spare time to do it! Hopefully I can get some time to do one next weekend... :fingerscrossed:

you sure are and you are welcome. just wondering is that an orange canvas or did you use the orange/yellow gradiation on the white canvas first?

Thank you! No I started with a white canvas and did the red/orange/yellow sunset background first. This was the first time I tried using one of those hard cardboard back canvases. I much perfer the stretched canvas - easier to work with and less course. But that's just me! :)

Reminds me of where I use to live in Florida, granted it was on the East coast, so I could call it sunrise.

Excellent job with the blending of colors. Keep it up beautiful!

Thank you Jasmin! :hug: I know, when I took this photo of my painting I still had my crappy little camera. But I got a new one for Christmas this year! So at least my paintings from now on should be better! I painted this for my daughter last year in February for her 21st birthday. If I remember to take my new camera with me when I see her next, I'll try to get a better photo of it! :)

:giggle: I know! To be that young again... Although when we are together, people think we are sisters! I of course take that as a complete compliment! But she on the other hand - thinks she must look old! :lol:

Thank you Lynne for adding this to your :+fav:'s! I painted this for Jessie's 21st Birthday... I think my painting technique's have improved somewhat since then - it's been a year of added experience for me! But it is nice to see the improvements I've made at least! :lol:

Oh my! It doesn't quite look like an oil painting at first glance. To me, I get this feeling of a high quality colored pencil or acrylic painting. The coloring of the atmosphere is very nice!
