First up, you know it, the silly bottle shot.
This is Elemental Styles Copper-nicus, Bettina Yellow, Orange, Flame and Barielle Berry Blue.
I also want to mention that this is my very first attempt at sponging and gradients so go easy on me! I started with a layer of Yellow, sponged on Orange and Flame and freehanded a seagull with a random black. Here are those pics.
I then added a layer of Copper-nicus and my funky french in Blue, to symbolize the ocean, and it looks black in these pictures. Here is the final result.
Here is what I was trying to recreate.
This last picture is my favorite of all. I am seriously proud of how cool this picture came out. I'm going to blow this one up to 11x14 and frame it.
So this concludes my trip to the beach. I hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have. I will be going back next February-so more pictures then!
I'm not even going to ask which sunrise is better-because you can't beat nature!
Until next time people. Any thoughts out there?
