    I first painted this in 2005 using the trace function in Ink Art. I was happy with the result then, because it felt like real painting. But I always wanted to paint the same picture again without tracing and to measure my improvement. The new painting is presented here. Hope You like.

    I love it. I really like the washy reflections which look like they could be considered slick, speedy painting that feels like a generic effect and doesn't feel personal, and then coming in with details that sort of catch your attention like the occasional sound of a wave or people in the water.

    At least that's how it feels to me and it works great. It's like a counterpoint, perhaps like being in an active, almost blurry milieu with so much to process that it lays into a blur and then someone close turns to you and starts passing an observation of a detail (in this case about the lifeguard tower). It's very much a change in focus. That's an interesting counterpoint indeed.

    Nice pic.
