True blue

True Blue acrylic on canvas 30x60cm © Lisa Le Quelenec

Well after a couple of hours more painting, lightening the sand on the lower right and quietening down some of the tonal contrasts everywhere else I can now call this painting finished. Knocking everything else back so the sole focus is on the breaking wave with a softening glaze now brings much more attention to the crest and the delicious shadow that I've tried to capture. Thank you  Bruce  and   Zoe   for your help over this painting, your comments and feedback are much appreciated.

Beautiful - and you're right, the star is that cresting wave now :) But I do love the sandy beach, too.

You're quite right. That shadow is absolutely delicious. It's a wonderful dark contrast to the wave. Beautifully executed.

Beautiful work, Lisa and, to paraphrase Zoe, definitely a 'Le Quelenec'. Your seascapes are so stunning and captivating and just draw you in!
