new painting: beach

New painting! I created this as a gift for my uncle's 50th birthday. He is a big fan of the ocean, boats and tropical paradise. This took way longer to finish then I originally expected. Making sure the sky and ocean had different tones of blue and getting the sand color just right proved to be a challenge. I'm happy with the outcome and really like the "flow" of the design. This has a of brush strokes at play which represents my signature style. It should be arriving to him this week and I hope he really enjoys it.
