Beach 5 – Acrylic on Canvas – 12” x 12”
This painting is 5th in a series inspired by natural patterns observed on an ocean beach.
The lacelike sea foam patterns left on the beach by waves long returned to the sea. These rows were each of varying pattern, illustrating for me the wonder apparent in the endless variety of nature.
I used a mixture of partially dried acrylic paint and gloss medium to carve and form the lacelike patterns. I used several thin color glazes applied with a brush and small dashes of foam and shell were applied in droplets.
