Here, I've added shading onder the rock arch, painted, heated lutradur to the tops of the foaming wae, and melted painted cellophane to the leading edge of the water.
I'm off to paint the little girl now. Usually, I do the hardest part (people, animals, etc.) first to be sure I can do it, but I did it backwards this time. Oh, well......
Hi! My Waves and Waterfalls class is opening on February 21st at www.academyofquilting.com, so just thought I'd put a waterfall up, even though that one is all done, already.
So, putting them all together, here's the scene I'm working on. The kite will be a bit smaller, the girl's eyes won't be so distinct, and I've changed the beach bag to a pail and shovel.
So far, I've painted the sky, Puff Painted and painted the arch, made and painted the sand, and am working on the ocean.
Hope to post pictures of them after work!

There is vitality, a life-force, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through another medium. It will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is…It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. - Martha Graham
"We can do no great things, only small things with great love." - Mother Theresa
"When the eye, the hand, and the heart come together, that's when you get the greatest art." - David Hockney
