A Day at the Beach

A Day at the Beach - unfinished, maybe--12"x16" oil

Okay...this is what I've been working on for a few days. The color isn't the best in the photo. The sand looks the same color as his skin, and that's not the case. It's actually a lot lighter. I don't know if I'm happy with it yet, but my husband says STOP! I don't want to overwork it, but I feel like it maybe needs something on the right hand side...a blue bucket? I think maybe the green shovel should be blue, too, but I don't know...Does it feel balanced?  Am I done? I'm putting it away for a few days so I don't have to look at it for awhile, but your input and honest critiques would be so appreciated:) Sometimes one just gets stuck, and can't see what they're looking at anymore. 
Thanks in advance!!
