I've already starting using some of the photos we took on our beach crawl for paintings. This is the first one. It still needs a bit of tweaking, but it's good enough to share at the moment.
When I did this painting I had to look to Google for the dog in the picture, so on this trip I made sure to get a few snaps of dogs running around.
This is the original photo. It's actually one my Mum took. I have a couple of rules about which photos I paint from; either I took them, or I was there when they were taken, so that I have some connection to the image
