I really wanted to like this painting. I've been searching for an enormous piece of art for our beach house, but this wasn't it. There is no giclee process involved here. It's just a print. Typically, giclee art has visible and tangible brush strokes. This print did not. The colors were pretty unrealistic of a beach scene - a lot of peaches and tangerines. It's a nice size but not worth the money.
Bought this picture based on the online image. It is lovely if you want pumpkin orange skies. The water is deep blue- looks like water on a cloudy day and the sand is almost gray. Did not like the colors at all. Love the open window idea but colors are not true to the image here. Did not match my expectations.
I was looking to replace a picture I had taken from one room and put into another without painting the wall! When I saw this picture it reminded me of Old Cape Cod which is a place I have visited on a frequent basis for over 55 years and this captured the spirit. The painting is beautiful and takes me away each time I look at it. Right after I purchased it I found a place down the cape to call my own. My wife and I had been looking at this place since we got married in 1973 and wanted to retire there but we just had too much on our plates with kids and college and just living. Time has a funny way of bringing people together with the things and people they love! I hope whoever reads this review takes a minute to put your dream on a wall because it just may come true.
I love the scene, it looks great. However, I had to add the hardware to the canvas frame to hang it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was more vibrant when I received it than shown online. It is beautiful on my wall just as I had hoped it would be.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The canvas is slightly loose and could be tighter. Also, it was a little warped and did not sit flush against the wall.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was accurate
I love this painting! When looking at it you really feel as if the ocean is right outside the window. The scene is calming and the colors are beautiful. I had a large expanse of wall without windows so the extra large size was perfect.
This is represented perfectly in the picture. Colors are dead-on, and it has that oil painted look. It has 3 sailboats off in the distance, that I didn't see in the picture originally when I bought it. It's canvas stretched over real wood, needs no glass or frame, and sits about 1 3/4 inches away from the wall. Exacty what I wanted!! Looks very shabby chic, especially with shelves above and below picture, to frame the 'window'. It arrived in very good condition, considering it's nearly half the size of the truck that delivered it. It did have a couple of tiny scuff marks on the sides, but you really can't see them unless you know what you're looking for.
I read the reviews and was concerned about the "orangeness" some of the reviewers referenced. Maybe it's just the type of available light where I put it but it seems just fine.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Although not as much "texture" as I had hoped for it is still a quality piece of merchandise.
Looked at this on-line for a couple of years but did not have a place in my home to put it (I had already decorated with another ocean scene but really loved the look of this one). Well, we are moving to a new home & I now have the perfect wall to hang this large & gorgeous artwork. The description was totally accurate not too much of any one color. A perfect balance and blend of all colors. A real focal point of the room. I had the picture "framed" in white window casing with a white shelf along the bottom. Everyone who sees it says they feel like they are actually looking out a window with a view of the ocean. THANKS Overstock for another great product!

The canvas wasn't stretched tight to the frame for one thing. The color of the painting shown in the advertised product is more muted than what was actually received. The sky especially has a lot more orange in it than what appears in the advertised picture. Was a bit disappointed but since I have it, I hung it up.
It was time to redo the bedroom and I wasn't sure what I wanted. I was just browsing the art and then I found this picture. It reminded us of all our vacations down south (we live in Ohio) at the beach. Just looking at it brought back the sound, smell, and pleasant memories of the beach. We love it. We decided to paint the walls the color of the sand and used the light blue black out curtains that overstock sells. The picture just "pops" with that beautiful sunset. A fantastic picture.
This picture is just beautiful. It is true to color and size. It is well mounted, with finished ends, it does not need an additional frame. Excellent choice and price for the size of the piece. If you love looking at the beach, this piece of art is perfect!
I placed this on my bedroom wall, opposite my bed. It's the first thing I see in the morning so my day always starts with a lovely view. I think the sky is a bit more orange and purple than in the photo, but the color scheme works well in my bedroom which has a lot of white, gray, and purples. I have it hanging above a three shelf bookcase, and it is about 1 1/2 times wider than the bookcase.
First time I got this as a gift to my BF, for his bedroom. When my man wakes up, he sees the ocean scene and imagine how nice it is to live like that. We dream of having the house on the beach. It is a beautiful piece to have, it is huge and very light in weight. No damage to a wall mounting this window :) The second time I suggested our department buys it as a gift to our boss. He was moved to an office without any windows and started getting a little crazy there. When he was offered a different job, he got the picture as his trophy... Highly recommend. It is a photo of a painting, so if you want it to look more like a real painting, you can get oil paints and touch the canvas in many places. There is a lot of white, you do not need to be a painter in order to add embossment...
I bought this for a beach-themed room I was designing, and it was the perfect piece to finish it! Very big piece of art, perfect for a larger wall space
