"Low Tide"

 6 x 6"
oil on panel

There comes a point when I know I'm painting too tight for my liking - it's a fine line.  So I ditched my other painting and whipped out my fat brush, knowing that would take care of it - you just can't get too nit-picky with it.  It's a good exercise - sure to get you to loosen up again.

Cette dernière toile est également une peinture magnifique et très sereine de par son atmosphère. Juste le soleil et la mer...
Vos couleurs sont sublimes...
Gros bisous.

Ha!! I wish all it took was a fat brush to paint as well as you do, Karin!!!

Love your work.

As I read your post I thought I wonder what Karen calls a "fat brush" then was delighted to scroll down and see the brush!

Love these last two paintings. Nobody does skin tones better than you. Or reflective, wet sand. The body posture of both is so reminiscent of folks at the beach. You make amazing things happen on small surfaces and using big brushes. That is why we love you.

Thanks for the advice about the fat brush. I am way too "nit picky" for my taste and need to loosen up.

I love the sparkle in the water at her feet.

The reflection is perfection and the sparkle of the water tells me it was a sparkling, shiny kind of day at the beach.

I love the reflections in this painting. And that you showed us the size of your brush next to it. I took your advice and painted my last painting with a bigger brush and you were right, it did make a huge difference. One day I want to take a workshop with you. :) You should come out west sometime, the weather is lovely here!! *wink wink*
