My first critique ever. Please tell me what you think . First, I love how you did the sky. You did it with Artrage right? You have to teach me someday how to do it. My first thought is "man, this is good!" But when I saw it clearly, I noticed some of the sand is in the water? Maybe you tried it to look like the water moves the sand? No a bad idea at all, but it looks a little bit strange. It is a very good piece, I only think sand could improve, that's not easy. So congrats!
To be critical, the water reminds me of a series of splahes as opposed to waves 'lapping' up against a beach and I don't get any depth via the sand. I really do like the overall effect though colour wise! Nice work Barb!
Thank you dear Antony!! You are correct on both, and yes I do see it that way...thinking now even if splashes, they need something to splash on like a rock or something. Perhaps, I will continue on with it this winter and see if I can make it better!! Thank you so much for your help!!
