Playing with sea

A quick study and a painting

There is nothing funnier than chasing a tennis ball, according to our fetching hero Chester. You can often find us playing on the beach, where Chester can run as much and as hard as he can.

Still impressed by wonderful seascapes made by Dennis Roberts, I decided to paint a little study on cardboard first, trying to catch the movements of the waves, the dog and myself. Not really succeeded in making the shapes and figures having correct proportions first, but I think I conveyed it right later on canvas. I used the limited palette of primary colours plus burnt umber and titanium white.

So this became "Fetching", acrylic, canvas, 24x30 cm. View the finished painting in my gallery.
