Just a drawing that my Grandmother can see. Still going for simplicity...it is harder than it looks.

I love the simple style; the colors of the clouds and the water- also you drew some really nice feet!  The sort of awkward or tense feeling of the two of them facing different ways (and the way the woman has her arms around herself) makes me wonder what's happening here...

I'm sure you have gotten this question before but I must ask, what do you use to color these?

BERT70 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2014
The color is all Photoshop.  Most of them are done that way...there are a few that are watercolor.

Lovely; just lovely. I look at this (and so many of your other pieces) and I am touched by waves of nostalgia. I think these remind me of the many book illustrations I poured over as a child.

Another beautiful scene, and I love how there are so many interpretations here! One is that he is looking at impending storm clouds (great way to ruin a beach day) and she just stepped out of freezing cold water. My other interpretation is that they just had words with each other, given the fact that they are turned away from each other and her defensive body posture. Anyway, it is a great picture!

Your second interpretation is the feeling I was going for...a little tension. Glad you noticed! Thanks!

Not at all, everything is especially good. I can't choose between the faces, the hair and the clothes; all are captured really well, and you're always excellent.
