Beachscape - Work In Progress - Stage Two
I worked some more on the waves and I have to fight myself not to do anymore as, being a detail painter, it's very hard for me to keep landscapes/beachscapes loose. They are definitely not my forte. I'll now focus on the foreground elements. This is going to be a challenge for me too as the painting is a 'landscape' shape whereas the reference pic is 'portrait' shape. Once I add the kids, I'm going to be left with a lot of blank space in the foreground.......not sure if that will work. Being self-taught, I'm sadly lacking in the composition department so any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
