Beach Kids

Searching for Crabs
14x11" acrylic
I love the way the group of children, the rocks and the reflections lead the eye
around this composition. Two of the children are my niece and nephew and the other child is just along for the hunt.  It's great to see how children just join in with each other to play.
This painting was more challenging than I had first thought. 
When you paint, you must always keep in kind that all tones/values are to be painted in relation to each other.  The other challenge was the fact that I expanded the original photo and had to imagine what elements would continue off the edges and around the sides. 
Overall, I like the happy, colorful impression of this painting.
