    sea cliffs

    I found a beautiful reference photo of ocean cliffs and had to give it a try. Oil, airbrush, some glitter in the sky and eraser (my most often used tool...along with the "undo" button) on several layers. While the sky and water were "knifed" quite a bit, I tried to use a bare minimum of smoothing on the cliffs themselves so they're looser than my usual with the strokes (also known as little blobs) clearly visible.

    As always, C&C welcome.

    I transferred the image to my wide screen TV and stood across the room. I think your technique is far more effective than you realize. Do more like this.

    I think this is a GREAT job, particularly the reflection in the water. It's my favorite of the ones of yours I have seen! My only suggestion would be if you might want to rotate it slightly.

    I agree. I couldn't figure out what was wrong at first but yes, the world is tilted.
    jbyrjbyr1 You have a great painting here. I do think some of the reflections are missing and could easily be fixed. Hope this helps.

    Hi JBR - Your technique seemed to me to be very like I used on this one I dabbled with a while ago, so thought I would post my effort !

    Totally agree with Doctor Robert et al about the technique. Another way to "fix" the shoreline would be to use a small knife to pull some horizontal lines at the interface between land and sea.

    Really pleasing work JB.
