Day 14 - Good Day for a Dip

 
Acrylic on Board 16cm x 16cm
 
Another divine day today. I painted this with a palette knife from the photo below. I took the photo this morning while out swimming and walking with a friend. I love the lush, thick application of  paint but it does make the sea look much wilder than it really was.
  Not that I mind - I feel rather thrilled with the outcome.
 
 
Nice to see that the kids had perfect conditions for their Vacswim swimming lessons today.

  10. Oh this is so lovely. Like too that the water does look more wild - gives the painting movement. Keep painting friend.
