Beach 8 – Acrylic on Canvas –8” x 8”

This painting is 8th in a series inspired by natural patterns observed on an ocean beach.

Inspiration

Nature continues to inspire me with the beauty found in small things. Again I have focused on the nearly embroidered or lacelike effect of sea foam deposited on the beach by the receding waves. This particular spot had a great deal of interesting shapes spread out on the wet sand.

Method:

The surface was stained with a rich brown. I then built up an additional undercoat of acrylic medium into which I imprinted and drew pattern. Further pattern came from cloth imprints in the initial glaze. Once the area was dry, I glazed it again with translucent zinc white, and accentuated the lines and pattern with additional applications of titanium white.
