Day 143

Beach Boy study, 5 x 7 inch oil on panel
© 2012 Kathleen Coy

I got a great series of photos of this guy on the beach at Hilton Head Island, and wanted to do a study before I tackled any of them, to get the feel of the colors of the dog against the water. This guy was so funny to watch, he was having a good old time playing in the water.


  1. Great brushwork and capture of lighting! Beautiful painting!

  2. I like your color palette... the grey/ blues of the water contrast nicely with the warm tones of the dog. Great brushwork also!

  3. Thanks, ladies! I really enjoyed painting this one.
