15 lucky minutes of painting!
wow. now this is one i would mind printing out on canvas, about 4 feet wide, framing, and hanging in my living room.
i look at it and my imagination runs wild with what might be in the fog there. i love that. that's why art is inspiring to me.
thanks for this one! (and all, of course!)

You did this in 15 minutes? great work very nice! I like the mood very much

Man, that's excellent. The boy with the kite sets off the scene wonderfully.
15 minutes? Wow - can I expect four pictures of this quality every hour then! ;)

It's the liquid black thing again.
That tip you gave me for creating a thinly coated wet canvas is the secret. A few touches of evening colours and some concentration on dragging them horizontally through, into and across the black.
It became a beach all on it's own. I just added the person with the kite.

Aged P, I`ve fallen in love with your painting. A real masterpiece!

i agree with andy, a great landscape on its own, the boy and kite just enhances it :)
:) Hi Aged P, its been said above, what a wonder in only 15 minutes.The colour blending, style and interest the picture produces on the eye is just amazing. Parfait mon amie :) Regards,Tony

Nice Aged P! Or should I say speed-P? 8)
This is great. My Dad taught me to fly kites when I was young, I can now get one up in very little wind and without running. I always say if you have to run to get a kite up, you're not doing it right. I would love to print this one out and send it to my Dad with your permission.
I love what you do with black canvas and getting the paint to look like light, you convey so much with an economy of brush strokes.

I would be pleased and flattered if you sent it to your Dad!

thats nice aged p...i like the sense of space in there...:).
Thanks Aged! I am thinking I will try to get a good print and frame it to send to him for Fathers Day. He will love it.

I printed the pic out at about A3 and it still looked good.
There was a strange square mark in the sky which I have now painted out and updated the posted picture.

Wow Aged P,
Doesn't that look like fun?
What a wonderful way to enjoy a sunset!
I love the silhouettes.

It was just one of those lucky moments. I was moving paint around to make an interesting background and it sort of crystallized into a beach.
The beach was then crying out for a focal point. So it got a boy/girl with a kite! Then the voices in my head said "If you try and paint the string in and ruin it, we will make you so sorry!" :lol:
So I didn't!
