    Palms at the Beach

    I haven't been painting for a while, so enjoyed getting back into artrage.
    I used the sparse bristle brush for the palm leaves. They may look a bit "stiff". If anyone has any hints on painting palm leaves I will be most grateful as there are a lot around here (where i live)

    Curious effect with the blurring in places. It brings it to life because in reality I occasionally have to adjust my vision. Also gives it a personal dreamlike quality. Colors are very sunny and gives an intense feeling.

    The interpretation that pops in is musical lyrics: Tales of Brave Ulysses by The Cream

    I hear:
    You see a girl's brown body, laughing through the turquoise and her footprint makes you follow where the sky meets the sea. . . (etc)

    Good to see you back! Hope all's been well.

    Thank you Caesar

    Thanks D.Akey. I'm not sure that I didn't go over the top a bit with the blurring. Thanks for making me feel better about it , and thanks for the "welcome back" too.

    Good music!

    A lovely painting Ann - you found the right brush for the palm fronds. Love the way you painted the sea too.
    June.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Thank you damasoci, bobbi, Marilyn Anne and Enug . I really appreciate your comments.

    It's a beach close to where we live Marilyn. It's very hot at the moment though. Too hot to walk on the sand without sandals.

    I like the comment about a 3d effect bobbi, thanks.

    Thanks June. I tried a few different brushes and that seemed the best to use. I did make a custom brush, a while ago, of a palm leaf, but it just goes the one way. I probably need to make a few different ones. Might as well paint them
