Sea Star, beach

Found this starfish at Walmart. It was bleached white.  It was smaller than others I had found, so I thought it might work well on this small cradled hardboard.  I painted it and adhered it with acrylic modeling paste after I created the beach.

 I inverted the support and primed and painted the beach on the back so that I could use the cradled edge as a frame. Usually, the cradled back is used to hang the art and the sides get painted, so framing becomes optional. But this way I had a built-in frame!

(It is quite difficult to paint the inside edges of the cradled wood without ruining the painting!)

 I had done this once before and really liked the effect ("Shoreline Treasures").

Also, I created "Sea Angel" at the same time as this project.

Enjoy!

Sea Angel, shells

 Played around with the patterns on the shells and they reminded me of a skirt, so I went with that and found some shells for the wings and head that were shiny.  Fun little project!

 I created "Sea Star" when I created this project.

Enjoy!

Below the Surface, turtle, fish, starfish, shells

Experimented with a limited palette. Wanted the texture to be the main focus. Added actual starfish, seashells, and clay objects that I created from molds. Used the palette knife to create the interesting textures of seaweed and sand. Peaceful.
