Sunset Stroll...






Here's a commission I'm finishing up this weekend. I still need to paint the figure in and work a little more on the background. I just really love the colors in this. I started it with a very colorful acrylic canvas. That way I didn't have to worry about any white peaking through.
 It's making me want to go to the beach, but that's nothing new. Thank goodness it's a sunny day here today...even though we desperately need rain here in California!

Beautiful!
Woke up to damp sidewalks here in the Temecula valley. (So. Cal.)

It's beautiful, Jennifer. Absolutely breathtaking, really.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a "colorful acrylic canvas." What a great idea.

Hi Susan! Thanks so much for your visit and kind words! I actually paint the colorful acrylic canvas before I apply the oil paint. I just can't remember what that's called at the moment! I usually paint just one color but this time I painted an acrylic wash resembling a sunset. It actually looked pretty good for just being a quick wash but it gave a nice base to this. Jen:)
