The part that drew me to this scene was that intensely blue sky, how flat the sand looks, and how the palm trees were reaching up so gracefully... I kind of want to paint this on a very large scale sometime.
The part that drew me to this piece was the shrubbery on the path, I really liked how bright the flowers on top were, contrasted with the dark underside. It also gave me a chance to paint those bluish purplish shadows that I love, and that little peek of the ocean on the left.
