Catching up - New Beach Painting in Oils

This painting too started off pretty much similar to Blue and Yellow, where I started it textured with Acrylics. If you know me well enough, you would of course figure that they weren't just started "similar", but simultaneously. The other day, a friend was asking me on facebook about how many works I have in progress at a time. I guess 3 right now by the last count.

With this one, my palette is quite limited - Ijust have French Ultramarine blue, Naples Yellow, Cadmium Orange and Burnt Sienna. And then some Titanium white. I wanted to leverage the beauty of the complementary colors next to each other and like the outcome. With the summer paintings, that's my main motive - to get it as bright and colorful as possible. All my focus is on color. I have gone in for very loose strokes in this painting, not at all bothering about details. The figures have more personality that way I think. And as usual, I would request you to click on the store link to check out closer shots, to see what I mean.

Hope you are enjoying the series as much as I am, let me know what you think.
