Waves

A fun painting of  my nephew. I took this photo on the Lido beach at HongKong,as the little one watched the waves rush to his feet.
I have been away from my colors for  long time, so I did this painting just to get my brushes wet again-- but I guess it turned out well enough to share with all of you!
Watercolor on paper, 12"x16"

  1. I have enjoyed going through your posts and this one is particularly beautiful - the colours and the composition are incredible Arti. And I do hope your Father-in-law is much better now.

  4. Nice wave action. You did a good job depicting the moving sand and water interface. Not an easy thing to plan out much less do.
