    Summer's Last Hurrah (Reworked as suggested)

    (Reworked image now appears first)
    It's been a while since I last posted an image. I've been working on this one for quite some time. It's far from perfect, but I'm happy with it.

    As well you should be happy with it.
    A marvelous job! I had to take repeated looks to be
    sure it wasn't a photo. Well done.

    Quite nice. It is difficult to draw the beach chairs, especially with the stripe materials. Well done.

    I really, really love this. The colors are spot on!

    I hope you do not mind I did a quick paintover, just suggesting a couple of things that may strengthen the piece a bit.

    I extended the painting out to give the beach more of an expanse and a cinematic view. Stretching your painting out a bit wider increases the illusion of space. The empty chairs, along with the more expansive landscape gives the viewer more of a bittersweet 'end of summer' feeling since there are no figures in the space.

    I also moved your birds over a bit so they are more 'alone' in the image.

    I hope you don't mind the crit and suggestions. It's a strong piece as it is.

    Darryl

    LogicsHere,
    It has been said that "three is a crowd" but in this case I would
    object for this scenic beach is large and engaging enough to entice
    any visitor, with or without a canvas chair. A charming piece and
    ... last one in is a slowpoke!
