I painted three of these (three tries), each a little different. (See below for how I tried to fix the sand on the first one.) I was practicing different ideas for the sand and ended up liking the use of a tooth brush over a fan brush because the grain of the sand turned out smaller and a little easier to control.
Watercolors are a little more difficult for me because mistakes are harder to correct. With acrylics I can paint over things and change my mind as often as I want. I usually start over with watercolors if it is not capturing my intended effect. In this series I did salvage the two that I was not as happy with, and I ended up with three nice paintings. The one featured below has a little more depth with the extra sand dune.
