Blue and Yellow - To the beach, after the lake!

I am a HUGE fan of Karin Jurick's work, specifically her beach paintings. Though people generally go gaga over her "People in front of artwork" paintings, which are of course freaking awesome, I like her beach paintings a tad more. And I've been meaning to do some for quite some time. And now that I am in the summer mode, it was a perfect time to continue from the lakeside to the golden sands.

We are not done with the lakeside paintings yet, but I just felt like doing this one from a beach trip last summer. I was just going through my photos and it looks like I have enough material for the next month at least. I hope to milk as much more as possible from the lakeside refs, and I guess this would go on side by side. :)

I started this one with Acrylics, and with the palette knife. So there is a little bit of texture in the sands. But did not feel satisfied and switched to oils. Since I am in the groove for doing oil paintings now, I kind of went with the flow :) Hope you like this one. Your feedback is welcome.

And, a reminder that my "make an offer" painting for the month, "An Afternoon in Venice" is available for bidding. Do drop me a mail if you are interested. Please feel free to share this with anyone who would be interested.
