Stromy Seascape Studies/South Beach
oil on wooden panel, 10 x 15cm
painted on location - Tues 2 April 2013
Found myself on the beach for longer than I had planned. The top and the middle works had to be totally repainted as had an incident of the wind blowing the whole panel off my easel and flat on its face on the sand! Speaking of sand, the wind also contributed to these works by transporting fine particales onto the surface of these studies. Luckily most of it will brush off when the paint drys! Top work shows a woman who provides a dog walking service, this area of the beach is great for that, as they are free to run about without a leash. Crashing wave in the middle study. A jogger and dog owner against the light, as it became late afternoon thus figures get reduced to dark shadows against the bright light reflected on the waters surface.
