Beach Boy, 6x6 Inch Oil Painting

SOLD
 Here's a favorite subject - a child playing in the sand at the beach...  This photo was from the trip to Hilton Head, and the sand was covered with a thin layer of water, which, in the late afternoon was reflecting the sky... just beautiful with the reflections....  and with the 75+ degree weather this week, here in Rhode Island, I'm thinking ... BEACH! (And I love his little cowlick!)

So I did this painting in the method I learned at the Karin Jurick workshop.  This will be incorporated in the general painting workshop I'm giving in Hull on April 25, 26 and 27.  To register contact Oceanside Gallery, where it will be held....

  2. sweeet! I love the way the weight of his butt is nearly in the sand-so kid-like and of course that red hair :)

  4. You did a beautiful job on the reflections and I am just totally enamored with the blues and greens in this palette!

  5. Kelley, I love the feel of this one. You really nailed his pose... very natural and easy. I almost expect him to go creeping along the sand in that squat-walk that kids do. The light on that sand is just glowing!

  13. Kelly, thanks for stopping by my blog today. I will admit I had a little trouble deciding which of your blogs to visit. Glad I found this one. I love your work. I'm an ex frustrated painter, but if I could, I'd want like you do. I't just great!
