Discovery at the Beach by Elizabeth Bravo

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Watercolor painting. 140lb Montval Paper.
This painting was done with a lot of wet on wet to start. I lifted color and actually sanded with a moist but almost dry paper towel. I used a dental tool to remove specks bringing out the impression of ocean spray.

I took several photos of these three girls at the beach in Carmel. It was the first time that I really had fun with my telephoto lens. They had no idea that I was there so I was able to capture the fun that they were having being at the beach. My intent was in taking photos of my niece and nephew, also great captures, but this was a fun photo to do as a painting.

Traditional, Digital & Photographic Artist
I am inspired by everything in life.
Nature, landscape, city life and more.
Over 25 years as a flight attendant has let me see life from every angle. On the road my camera and Mac are my constant companions. At home, it’s hard to find me with out a paint brush in hand.
No matter what, as long as I am creating I am content.
Thanks for viewing my work!!

    Charming the way you’ve blurred your creatures into a natural creature… everything’s wonderfully one with nature. You’ve pulled my imagination right through the frame Elizabeth into a meditation… a charming one. Thanks… Luvvit!

    Thank you so much Ted!!! Always appreciate your kind comments. It’s so fun for me to finally get my paintings up. The only thing lacking in my life really is TIME. I need more because I love to paint. It’s coming…..I know.

    Wonderful artwork Elizabeth; I really like the subtle color tones … for some reason they make me think of evening.

    You are such a talented lady. I love your work.Do you exhibit your watercolours?

  • Linda, thank you again for such kind comments. I do not exhibit yet. It’s something I am working toward. I do my painting when I can and building my portfolio has taken a lot of time. I think redbubble is the perfect place for me to find my true style. I can put things together and find what works as a collection. Then hopefully I can add what is needed to put it all together. All of the wonderful comments however are so very encouraging…so thank you!!!!
