The Sandpiper Gathering

Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina was an enjoyable part of my life. Though I no longer live in Charleston, I think of it often and do get back to visit family. Going to the beach almost every weekend was the norm. These Sandpipers are just something commonly seen no matter where you are.

I was commissioned to paint something that was big enough but not too big for a dinning room. I was given ideas and I ran with it.

Color palette, neutral and soft tones. Started with a Burnt Senna background and moved forward in the layers to get the exact impressionistic look I was going for.

My name is Tim Ellmers and I love to paint in a wide variety of mediums. All the artwork you will see on my site is done by me. I post items I am currently working on regularly when the time allows. Please join me on my personal journey for artistic growth. Free free to send me an email inquiring about my work or to ask questions. Cheers, and thank you for visiting!
