Fall Dunescape, 12" X 16", acrylic

This painting took a few days to finish.

I like the general look and feel but still want to be looser and less detailed or illustrative. On to the next!

Sanderling#2, 8" X 8", acrylic on board

These birds are very fun and appropriate for me at this stage. This is finished.

Sanderling#1, acrylic on board. 8" X 8"

Finally! This is from some photos I took this past summer while observing the "peeps" - shorebirds that run back and forth with the waves. This and the next (hopefully) three I will post will be Sanderlings. They are my favorite, they are the smallest and maybe the cutest. This feels successful to me, in my quest to get away from my illustrative style, and get more into the form, color, light, contrast, etc. of the scene.
