sand pipers background


Here is is the background of the sandpiper painting I am working on....as I said in the comments of the star wars pic below: I have the background (ocean wave pulling away to reveal wet sand and some foam on the beach, wave receding in the background) still need to add some highlights to the water then its adding in the sandpipers.

So here it is...

Looking good! All from your head or did you use a reference pic. How big is it?

the enitre background is from a reference pic. but the pic is small and danette's mom said she wanted the ocean to be "greener" to match the decor in the room! the pic is about 42" x 20" (approx). The birds (not done yet) are going to be more challenging. I have a bunch of reference pictures but I am going to pose them how I see fit for the composition...one pecking in the sand, one walking along and another looking back over its shoulder. We'll see how it turns out. I'll be roughing in the birds tonight...I'll post another pic later.
