Capturing the spirit of the Southwestern culture
Beautiful job, Tom! I love the lively brushwork - really gives the waves a lot of vigor. Great color and composition too.
Wow... great take on the challenge Tom. I have to admit I'm a tad disappointed no photos of calamitous interactions with this one from your little man child. You must have been painting on top of a 10 feet ladder.
Now that's what they're talking about. Great brush strokes and a beautifully bold feel. Love this piece Tom!
Tom, great to see more of your work, buddy. No doubt in my mind... you are the brush-stroke master!
TOm, I really like your version. Fantastic job.
I like the way you cropped it. Lots of nice brushwork and reflections.
Thank you Mr. Burton! This photo ref. really makes me wish I would have made it to your neighborhood last month! How's the weather in San Fran? How often do you make it to the beach?Hey Sheila! Sorry to disappoint... NOT!! :>) It was an act of pure determination on my behalf (and some luck) that I was able to complete this in one evening, shoot it & put it up out of harms reach, before the two-year-old could help me out again.Thanks Vern! I must say, painting is more fun when you can sit down and belt it out in an evening (a rarity for me!)Doug- If you're not careful, you'll end up with TWO portraits- (one circa 1989) :>)Thank you very much Anne Marie & Maria!
Great painting, Tom! The colors and loose brushwork fit the subject perfectly.
Love the brush strokes and the use of the bright/bold colors!!
Nice work Tom! Like everyone has already said - I really like the movement in this piece!
Just LOVE LOVE LOVE your loose brushy style. Makes me want to try oils myself....I'm all water at the moment.Will come back and visit often.
Well done, Tom! Great composition and nice brushy, lovely ocean strokes. The water is much more dynamic than the photo. Love how your cropped the people. Haven't started on this yet, not sure I'll get to it.
Wonderful brushwork as always. Love your colors and the emotion in this one. Great job Tom!
Like your ideas for the last two chalanges, lovely bold work Tom:o)
Thank you Olga & Hissnhowl!Hey BMoon- I'll try my hand at a watercolor if you'll do an oil! Deal??? I really like your blog :>)R- Can I be selfish and say that your potential non-participation makes me sad?! No? HaHa You sound very busy, which is a good thing and I am happy for you!Thanks Carol! Is speed an "emotion"? HaHa - I think the emotion was actually fear & loathing :>)Hi Sam! I thank you kindly!Happy painting to you all!
Thank you Dean! Much appreciated! On a side note... have you ever experienced "Comment Moderation Slippage"??? (Is there a term for this in the Blog-sphere lexicon yet?) I am notified through my email when I have a new comment- sometimes there are several bundled together in a single message- sometimes I don't scroll far enough down to see the second comment- only to find it at a later date through the Blogger dashboard- "Comments to be moderated"!By the time I find my error- days have usually passed, and more comments have usually accumulated in an unnatural order- and I imagine the author is left wondering "what happened" at best, or conversely, "Im never commenting on this jerks work again". A long-winded apology for my "C.M.S." :>)
Hey, Tom. Phenomenal painting! Ok, ticks me off you did it in an evening! The energy is fantastic. You are indeed the brushwork king. : ) Liz
Hi Tom, I have something for you on my blog.
Brushwork is fabulous! The motion implied is wonderful. And a fresh view!
Thanks Liz, Edward & Cathyann!
So cool, love the lively brushwork, awesome!
