Summer Reading

SUMMER READING, oil, 20x20" ©Diane Mannion

Revised Revision

Once called Her Beach, this painting has gone through so many revisions that it deserves a new post.  
And this is it!  Although I've said that before…  This IS it.  Yes, I'm happy with it now.
And there were many more revisions!

I think both versions are good but the richer colors you added and the wave movements are excellent choices.

Thanks, Julie Ford Oliver! Wanted to cut the painting into little parts but glad I painted over the groups of people instead. I think it has more mystery this way. And I'm happy how the book added a title and story.
When so much time is spent on a painting, it's difficult to give up, easier to start over. It was a learning experience. Your comments mean a lot to me, Julie.
