Gentle Push, 11" x 15", Pastel painted on Canson paper

I finished this one up today. I really only tweaked some areas, I didn't make any big changes. This was a first for me, a seascape, so I treaded somewhat carefully. I'm thinking the next one will be on sanded paper with a watercolor underpainting. Pastels are way too much fun - it should be illegal!

Very beautiful. I can actually feel the sea spray!

Hi Laurie! Thanks so very much, I truly appreciate it. Maine has such a beautiful coast, and I took tons of photos. Maybe I'll do another one, I really enjoyed painting this.

Do more seascapes, Chris. This is beautiful. I can hear the surf and smell the sea air. A thumbs up from the other coast.

Thanks so much Doug! I think I will try another one, I found it very relaxing once I got going with it.
