One at a time

Tide 2
oil on canvas
6 x 6 inches

This is the second painting in my Tide series and painting #60 of my 100 painting project. I still don't know how many of these little paintings of the surf I will do but I am enjoying the challenge of painting them. I am also enjoying the balance of alternating working in oil with colored pencil drawing. I don't know if I would ever settle on just one media as each has its own challenges and rewards. I suppose that if I had a larger working space I would have several projects going on at once. As it is, I paint one day, draw on another, and it's all good.

Gorgeous colors, Ann (and I see I am not alone in that thought)! I also can't settle on one medium, though I tend to use watercolors the most, I think.

I like it - there is a real sense of movement in this painting.

The colors you used are great. They create a unique mood that I like! I'm very interested in your transition between colored pencil and oils. I'm thinking of exploring oils myself. Any advice you could give would help!
