When typing in the painting's title just now, I wrote "Red Sails" - which was the name about three versions ago. I'm always amazed at the changes I make after the painting is done. On the right horizon, I replaced three small boats with a single large sailboat with red sails. Then I added the island to the left, then removed the boat. But this woman sitting at the beach does have a new bracelet.

Love this painting. You did a great job with the beautiful balancing of luxurious colors. Love the lapping waves and the turquoise & gold on the horizon. Fun towel...what a nice leopard that would make in the savannah. She twists her hair the way my daughter does. Love the highlighting on colors on her suit. Did anyone ever tell you "you're a really good painter" :)

Marie, lovely composition as always. You get such depth of colour with your acrylics. Do you use any medium with them? As to the including/removing aspect. This is what I really like about acrylics and it makes the painting a living thing, more respondant to our own perceptions as we work.
