Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.


I've been working on some commissioned drawings for a friend the last few days.  One of the drawings is of the beach.  And since it is already 100 degrees here in Austin,  I am ready to go to the beach.  And since I am too busy right now to do that, I decided that I might as well paint it!   Here is the drawing minus the secret area.



I finally had time to start my new painting today!  I heart the beach!

After working today & yesterday, I think that I am pretty much finished. I changed the center rocks color and I also changed the colors of the rocks in the front to make them look closer to the viewer.  I also glazed the water to make it look shiny and added some more white and blue to the water for contrast. 

Inspiration of the Day: The Laura Ingraham show, The Dr. Laura show, Sermon by Alistair Begg, K.Love Christian Radio.
