Different Strokes - Beach Scene

Different Strokes - Beach Girl
105mm x 145mm Oil on Acrylic Paper

This is another challenge from 'Different Strokes from Different Folks' (interpretation of other artists)

Karin's challenge is simple - one photo, many interpretations; this is mine. Again painted with a alla pima feeling and in under an hour... it's simple, it lacks finesse and it's simply an exercise in putting paint on the canvas.

I added this painting to my 'for sale' list after taking note of how many people liked it - I'm pleasantly surprised at the attention it's received!
