Blue Shallow Beach

I love to experiment with clouds and reflections in a beachscape. The clouds are brushed in freely with no regard for the small brush - this keeps them 'cloud-like' and uncontrived. The beach and sea are painted the same way. It takes a lot of practice (hundreds of paintings) to be confident in painting this way. Finally the figures are painted in with a small brush - this needs the utmost confidence for them to look right with the rest of the painting.
This painting is up for Auction with a very low starting price and no reserve!
