Updated Beach Collage
After my post yesterday, I did some more painting and added a quote from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Gift from the Sea. I also added some tissue paper in the bottom part of the landscape to soften the colors in that area a bit. This is definitely a fresh new way of working with landscape for me and I like it! For some reason, the photo is picking up the yellow sun rays and emphasizing them quite a bit; however, they are actually softer and blend in better with the rest of the composition than the photo suggests. I'm trying out Golden fluid acrylics, and find them to be fantastic. The color is intense and transparent at the same time. The intensity of the yellow seems to be emphasized in the photo.
