Playing with colours!

'Devil's Saddle (Yellow)'
20 x40 cm
I spend most of my days at the beach with my kids so I see this view too much! After painting the original I visioned it very abstract, so I experimented with colours and had way too much fun! I got all girlie and added glitter to the crest of the waves. Wasn't pleased with the purple and white reaction! (Can someone please tell me why that happened?) My first set of acrylics were a gift so I'm not too sure if they're pro. Not what you're used to seeing here but I used the same under painting and value study... I promise. Thanks for looking!

  1. Hi Sophia, I like the glitter on the waves and the glow on the water. The purple doesn't really work for me though, too much "chroma" , too intense color! It might work if you put a bit of burnt sienna in that purple to grey it a bit. Brian
