It is my first original seascape based on 2 different photo's that my Dad took out at Taylor's Mistake in Christchurch last week. I've been learning heaps from the DVD's I've been watching and I guess in this one I've used techniques from both Byron Pickering and E. John Robinson as well as some of my own preferences. I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out. Thanks to my babies who both slept at the same time this afternoon so that I could get it finished so quickly (that doesn't happen that often).
I am also working on something quite different for me for the NZ Art Guild Art Awards. I need to have it completed and ready by 29 January as that is the last day for delivering them (and I have volunteered to be the "collector" for the NZAG that day so I better have mine ready to take along with me. I won't post any photos of it until then as I'm not too sure how it is going to work out and just in case I need to do something completely different.

So, not perfect, but okay for a first seascape. I am also working through the DVD's on seascape painting by an American artist called E. John Robinson. He uses different colours in his seascapes so I picked up some blues today at the art store. His technique is quite different from Byron Pickering but I am learning lots from both and one of my goals for this year (among many others) is to paint a beautiful seascape that I am proud off.
