Sandy Beach

Sandy Beach.  Whether it’s a crowded tourist filled beach in Marseilles, France, or Galveston, Texas, or a secluded romantic view from Destin, Florida, or Fiji, South Pacific; everyone loves a sunny day at the beach.  With this work I wanted to capture that causal feeling of a warm breeze and a cool sea surf.

The underlying texture for the clouds was the first step of this large 4 x 4 foot canvas.  Construction joint compound mixed with latex house paint was applied in a thick band across the horizon, and then swirled with my fingers to give the impression of cumulus puffy clouds.  A thin glaze of cobalt blue mixed with a hint of white was applied and allowed to seep into the crevices of the clouds.  Acrylic paints were then applied horizontally using a paint roller, in bands of ultramarine and cobalt blues, cerulean blue mixed with cadmium yellow for a rich green, a turquoise made from cerulean blue, and then the beach with raw and burnt siennas.  Over the next week, layers were applied in a glaze fashion to richen the sky and water, and a hint of copper for the beach.  Attention was finally turned back to the clouds where titanium white was applied to the textured highlights, and then a gloss varnish applied.  Use your imagination to remember a day at the beach!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
