people on Bournemouth beach: children pulling dingys
20" x 16" oil on canvas
This is a painting of people on Bournemouth Beach, having fun in the sea. The view is looking down from the pier down on to the sandy beach below. Some of these people can be seen in other paintings of the beach. The wet sand, with the reflections bouncing off it was fun to paint, as was the large, green wave, just starting to break down. Painting the white foamy parts on the water is exciting as it fixes the action of the sea within the artwork.It is based on a number of photographs and rearranged in photoshop to create a pleasing composition. From this a master drawing is created leading on to the final painting. It is painted in oils on a canvas sized at 20" x 16".
