Along The Shoreline
12x16, soft pastel
Along The Shoreline is most likely my favorite painting during the January 30in30. Unfortunately the photo doesn't really pick up the true blue and green colors in the water...I'm assuming it may be because of the strong red dominating the center. Being much larger than the typical 6x6 paintings I often do for the Challenge, it took a week or so to paint. Painting larger is easier for me if I paint each day, not expecting to complete it all in one go. Of course, I like the variations of red...but I also like the water and all the trees reflecting in it that were along the shoreline....thus, the title. I will surely hate to part with this one!
