Beach 13 – Acrylic on Canvas – 20″ x 20″

This painting is the 13th in a series inspired by natural patterns observed on an ocean beach.

I am interesting in the space where water and sand meet. The movement of waves, the lines of retreating water, the deposits of sea foam soften that border, making the line between sea and sand unfixed and fluid. I used sand & earth colors of sienna, ochre, and grey, employing a number of thin color washes, with lines and dots applied with an acrylic loaded pen.
