Beach 10


Beach 10 – Acrylic on Canvas – 11″ x 14″

This painting is the 10th in a series inspired by natural patterns observed on an ocean beach.


I continue to be intrigued by the lines seen on a beach, especially the lines and edging left by the surf and retreating waves.


The work began with translucent washes of color in the tones of wet sand. Texture was added by impressing patterns into subsequent heavier coats of acrylic medium and also by drawing lines with a pen loaded with liquid acrylic paint to indicate the retreating threads of the surf’s froth.
