HAVING FUN AT THE BEACH

This is made for "Moo Mania", theme "At the Beach".






It measures about 4 x 3½ inches, the size of one of my sketchbooks.

I thoroughly enjoyed making it, and it was made after a lovely day at the beach.



Linking to "Paint Party Friday" where artist friends share what they have made during the week.

  1. the background looks a little bit like a shower on on which one the water is dropping down from the inside and with a few animals and plants like plankton on the outside of the shower. And the colours are so much brighter than these of the pictures of my mom! Well done :D
    love, Antonia ♥

  2. I love the little creatures on the bottom. They are pretty cute and look like they have a fun time wobbling around the bottom. I can tell you had a good day at the beach because this is a happy piece.

  3. If the colors are an indication of your day at the beach, then I can see it was an extremely pleasant day, indeed. Love the colors and the appearance of water. You're so good at that technique. I too love the cute, cute sea creatures moving along the bottom. I do hope those in the boats don't catch them if they are fishing. I think those might be glow fish at the top. I think if I turn out the lights, they will glow in the dark. I'm sure they will.

  6. I love that effect you got in the background - it really does look like looking through a blurry wet window, really clever.

  12. It's fun to see your fish swimming above the under water sailing boats and I think they are looking a bit astonished about the boats there. The beings with its 3 feet on the ground look as if they were waiting for something. The colors are that fresh and icy as if all this happens somewhere near Greenland.

  13. As I was scrolling down to comment my eyes hit on the word SEA and my mind started humming "I'd like to be in an octopus's garden under the sea..." oh my, beautiful work with great texture and colours. It looks like something created on a shower door with all that yummy texture!! Thanks for sharing!! Another fun piece!!

  25. Sheila, your drawings are always fun to see and so whimsical. I adore how the fish are so much bigger than the boats. Reminds me of the movie Jaws! Cute and adorable entry.
