boat trip Samos

Hello everyone!

 On our vacation to Samos,Greece we made a boat trip to a deserted, little and gorgeous beach.
Wanted to kinda blend this photo into the background and did a lot of painting.
I'm really pleased with the result!
This one is for hubby who absolutely loves boats!

The background was painted with acrylic paints and gesso.
Overheated some area's to get more texture.
Made the brown flowers with small ribbon.
The lighthouse and fish net were given a little coat with gesso.

Dusty Attic goodies used:
Dusty In Bloom, Blue bonnet, DA0807
Anchors, DA0558
Lighthouse small, DA0007
Fish Net Panel, DA0654

And some close-ups:

Enjoy your day!
