Durdle Door by KaceyM Durdle Door by KaceyM
An area of the coast of England near Durdle Door...

Done with oils on 30"x40" canvas, and referenced from a photo.

This is my 2nd large scale landscape oil painting project, and I am planning many more. I'm really enjoying working with oils, and I believe this one has more detail than the last ("Waterfall")

I really enjoyed painting the water - and the pebbles were quite a challenge.

Holy . . . I honestly had to stare at this for what seemed like a minute to decide if it really was a painting or a photograph. Very well done! :wow:

:icondragonwant: This is amazing! It's like I can actually see the water moving. The cliffs are also amazing, the texture is brilliant. It's almost as though I could reach out and grab the pebbles.

I think that this should be hanging in Louvre instead of Mona Lisa.
Everybody who I know and saw this said that this is photo :) Its just awesome...
These are really oil paintings? Everything done with them by most of the artists looks terrible... It dosent looks real, but yours ... Without description I wouldnt know how did you do that.
I love your artworks and I hope you will continue in painting because you are really good at it.
Even tho this one isnt furry art, Its one of the best, so I wrote this here.

PS: I personaly think that you are the best artist who I had ever saw in my life...

You are definately a critter of many talents- seen your artwork in other places, and never been able to comment(wasn't joined).

Between your great character work and works like this- you are a talented person!

Oh wow. The colours and details are exquisite! It's almost more realistic than a photograph, somehow. I really want to have a go with oil paints now....

It's also nice that it's this way round as well - most photographs/paintings of Durdle Door that I've seen have been from the other side.

Did you use any special technique for the pebbles in the foreground or was it just a case of patience and a steady hand?

patience, a steady hand, and I also worked darks to lights mostly.... so I painted in the shadows first and then the highlights. Painting the dark area around each pebble was probably the most time consuming part.
