This is my grandson, marching across the beach into the river. Thanks for the tips on a discussion I posted 2 weeks ago, whether to draw him in first, background first etc....well I sketched it out, then painted over, trying to pay attention to values, blacked it in. I struggled with the waves/ripples on the water, being a small beach with a little cove, river runs past and laps against shore. I also put a clear semi-gloss over the water and life jacket for a little shine (though it might not show in my photo). Overall, I am happy with it and learned a lot.
