Daily Painting, Beach Scene, "Reel Her In" 8x10" Palette Knife Painting SOLD

This is the second time I have painted this scene.  The first time, several years ago, was a small 5x7.  I wanted to paint it larger, but couldn't find the image on my computer.  When I finally found it...I didn't have the size canvas I wanted to use (14x18) so, because I was frustrated I did it on the 8x10.


I suppose this means I will repeat the process again at some unknown point in the future.

This time I painted with a palette knife and brush.  I like the texture that can be achieved with the knife.  I also have added some great "ocean" colors to my palette.

Who knows....maybe the next time I paint this scene, it will be an abstract!

This is the first painting.  Do you have a  preference?

I like both of them but am drawn to the softer color in the first one you did. Great subject and painting!

I really like both pieces, Carol but prefer the first one. I love the texture you captured, using the palette knife. Wonderful work..


I like the second one. It must be fun to do a picture again and see what happens.

I think the second painting, the first is lovely too, but the second has more depth I believe and detail. Your work is wonderful Carol.
