The first picture is my original sketch that I colored in with water color pencils, and the second image is my rendition of the same sketch done with oil paint on a 9in. x 12in. canvas board. It is just a wash and outline of the image yet to be painted in, so it's far from done (still wet!) and I will be in California for the next week so I won't get to work on it until I return, but hopefully I will get some cool paintings of the beach on my vacation. Hope you enjoy, and thanks to David S. Clayton - you were right this one I think will turn out quite nice with some color added. The watercolor version is nice but I think that the oil version will be far better!
