Beach Family Triptych


Oil on linen triptych.
4 1/2" x 11" each.
$150 - Shipping to US included.

This family at the beach is the current Different Strokes Challenge. I was glad to get some time after a trip to complete these. The poses seemed to isolate the individuals, so I decided to separate them into a triptych. They are together at the beach, yet isolated. I also really enjoyed how elongated the reflections were in the reference.

Something different on the painting challenge...I like the triptych. You are very expressive in your painting.

Thanks for all of the kind comments.

When I decided to paint it as a triptych, I knew it would take a little longer. I took time over two days after getting back from a trip, so I just got it done before Karin's deadline.
