To and Fro, beach, crabs, waves
"To and Fro"
Palette knife painting on a small wooden plank. This was actually a failed attempt at transparent layers of water rushing up over the sand. The wood grain was perfect for the sand and made interesting patterns that I wanted to exaggerate. But the wood its self was damaged in a quite a few places and the thin layers of paint exaggerated the odd scars in the wood, which went in the opposite direction of what I was trying to achieve.
So I squished out large blobs of paint and took my palette knife and covered the scarred wood with wonderful mixtures and textures! I added some pearlescent paint in the water and two little crabs running back and forth on the beach, which made me laugh. Good memories.
