Day 13 - Leaving the Beach

I took this photo down the beach this summer.. It was late afternoon and these ladies were packing up, getting ready to go.  As an artist, you have to pick and choose what to include in your painting.  You certainly don't have to, and probably don't even want to include everything in the scene you are looking at.  There are reasons for this.  Not everything makes a nice composition, for one, and some things just aren't necessary to convey what it is you want to convey.  I highly edited this one, because all I cared about in this scene were the beautiful ladies!  The one putting her hair up was dancing a little dance and they all were dressed in beachy wraps.  I will include the original reference shot so you can see just how much I took away, and changed.  Enjoy!

  1. There is a feeling of "mouvement" in your painting, Karen! Love your beautiful women .
    Happy challenge!
