I've been working a project for the last few weeks and I'm finally done. Here's how it all started. I have two talented young friends and also occasional babysitters that are both going to college to study in the art field. One wants to teach art and the other is a film maker. Every Monday they get up and head out to our beach at sunrise and go surfing. They capture the beauty of the surf on a Go Pro. Then, they let the world have a peek via Instagram. I drooled over the beautiful photos. One particular photo caught my eye and I really wanted to have it printed on canvas and hung in our bedroom. Because of the resolution, I couldn't make this happen, so I decided to paint the scene.
Here's the original photo
|I just love how the beauty of nature, all my favorite colors collided in this moment and these two girls captured it.|
|Here is my first run through, My first layer.|
|My second round, adding more.|
|The finished piece.|
This is my husbands Christmas gift. It's the biggest painting I ever done. I can't wit to get it professionally framed.
