24x12" Oil on Canvas
Papamoa Beach in the Bay of Plenty, NZ is a long Pacific Coast beach similar to Ruakaka but in the evening the light comes in at a different angle i.e. from the left so the beach itself is in full sunlight rather than shadow.

I like the inclusion of the man made element - it implies a path down to the beach, and invited me right into the scene. I like your slightly subdued colour palette too.

Smiles Denis:-)

Great work Denis. All good. Would have liked to have seen a larger light area in the dunes - just extending that central clump to the left and right to make more of a feature of the centre of interest.

I like the calmness about it Denis

Nice light and shadow on this Denis

Thanks for your comment Ana - I like the bit about feral animals. The object is in fact a small bench seat and I should probably have left it out as it doesn't really add much to the scene.

I like your version Denis, one question though, what represents the that little house lookalike? Is that kind of shelter for feral shoreline animals?

Thanks for your comments Cristina, Siobhan and Lamoine.
