After my first professional painting (click here to see picture) I decided to try my hands at a more complicated painting. Okay, I’m lying. I started this painting about 3 weeks before my professional painting class. I left it sitting because I couldn’t figure out just yet how to add the most intricate details. I should have taken a before picture. I finally worked up the courage to complete it today and I’m quite pleased with the result. With enough practice and patience, I’ll paint a more realistic beach someday. This will do for now. Enjoy :-).
