Beach landscape

I have been absent for very long in blogger. I do believe my accidental profession ill suits me. I haven't visited  my friends too :( I have been learning some shading techniques from tutorial videos. I hope you like this beach landscape. Landscapes are so much more satisfying and fun to draw than portraits, atleast for me personally. See you soon!

Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

  2. Die Welt besuchen und betrachten, eine lange Reise braucht es nicht, denn mit einem Klick ins Land der Blogger hat man alles schnell im Blick...

    Lieben Gruß und Sonnenschein

  3. Hello, Ruby, it is nice to read you again on Blogger. I think that peaceful landscape means that you feel serenity. Personally, I like quiet landscapes like your beach one and also foggy ones which are very soft and mysterious. Do you like foggy landscapes too?

  4. Wow .. this one is awesome ... truly amazing !!!

  5. A nice landscape scene Ruby. Nice to see you back again - :-) - Dave
