Dogs at the Beach Painting (WIP)
"Little Darling, It's been a long, cold, lonely winter. Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here. "
Here comes the Sun.
I think I am beginning to emerge from hibernation. The sun was out most of today. Long enough at least to dash out to my lair and snap a few pictures.
I have been painting, although sporadically over this nasty winter. Painting sun-drenched beach scenes refresh the soul in February.
I posted this on Facebook a few weeks back. I got a good response even though it was a terrible photo. I could not find a card reader and had to crop it through whatever default photo editing software that happens to have come with my laptop. I cleaned up the painting a bit, re-shot and cropped it on hubby's computer. I think you can get the gist of it. I have another "woodland" landscape that I may post soon. The sun was glaring too much today.
Why do I love back lit scenes so? They intrigue me for some reason but are a bear to paint. I kept going over the dogs, trying to get some detail even though I couldn't see much from my original photo.
Anyway, I have been painting a bit. I need to paint more.
