Summer Portrait

I just finished this portrait. It was done with pastels and pencil. I like the way he is surrounded with the blue ocean. Very summery.Perfect time to do this painting.... I want to go to the beach.
Anyway, I wish I had gotten better pictures before I had to hand it over. The top photo, I used auto fix, in photo shop. The lower one is just straight up picture. I do not really know how to use photo shop, as you can see. But, the real painting is somewhere between the two in color.
We have alot going on in our family right now. This past week has past by so quickly.

Just stopped by to say hi....This is a sweet picture. Definitely summery! I have been slacking a little with my posts, but will have to get back in gear....

Amy, I'm sure they just love this painting. I struggle with the photography part, too. I want so much to keep a good record of what I do along the way. Thanks always for your sweet comments.

Great portrait! I love the blues (my favorite color)

I notice how you captured the light reflecting off the sand onto his face. Wonderful job!
