Maine Beach

My photo of a beach in Southern Maine. Worked on my iPad Pro with Repix, Laminar, Leonardo and Snapseed.  Textures and gulls my collection.

I have decided to start working on my iPad Pro again.  My plan is to retake my mobile art courses and really apply myself.  I want to get to know the apps and pick out a few to work with.  Since the lessons I am looking at now are landscapes I thought I would work on one of my Maine shots. I actually enjoyed doing this one.
