Traditional Painting in Oils First Prize Winner, Noosa Beach by artist Chris Hobel

Noosa Main Beach Oil on canvas
I was thrilled to receive a phone call on Friday informing me that I had won First prize in the Traditional section of the Noosa Show.
As an artist it is a great feeling to receive recognition for your efforts. I love to paint in many styles but traditional  seems what Im best at .
The  John Wilson  Master workshop Im attending in a few weeks will give me more skills in oils so the win give me a real boost as I have been feeling a bit of the artist doldrums lately and have had difficulty focusing on the direction I want to take with my painting
This is the beach I swam at today and is very beautiful. I painted it from a photo I took  early in the morning
