Get to the Beach

With summer air all around us it really is time to get to the beach. A day of painting and watching the tide move makes the artist work at a sustained accelerated rate.  The kaleidoscope of colour revealed on the water is a seasonal pleasure that I would liken to eating fresh strawberries in a field. A little bit sand always seems to find its way into the work adding unplanned texture to the surface. The high contrast colours reflect an intensity of light not seen at other times of year and is oddly unfamiliar but welcome at the same time. Did I mention the water was warm?
