Surfer Girl


5x7 on canvas board
This is my submission to Different Strokes from Different Folks. I'm happy with the way this painting turned out. The original image for this challenge had a lot more activity. I like what simplifying the composition did for the painting

Really nice! Looks photographic when it's little - I like the waves :)

Very nicely done!

Wonderful painting! I chose the same cropping. I like to focus on one figure too...probably because I also enjoy small format art.

Your water is magnificent! (Guess it helps to be in Florida.) The redering of the figure is also very lovely.

Jim, your colors are clear and beautiful, just what you'd see on a hot summer day. And I really like the way you handled the reflections.
