Beach finds...



Als ik op het strand ben, kan ik het niet laten om schelpen op te rapen. Wie niet. Ik heb een glazen pot waar ik mijn vondsten in bewaar: schelpen, steentjes, veren, een mooie kraal....
Het zandeffect op het onderste schilderij heb ik gemaakt met aquarelpotlood en schuurpapier zodat er fijne deeltjes vallen op het vochtige papier.


Whenever I am on the beach, I cannot resist picking up some shells. Who doesn't. 
I have a glass jar where I keep my treasure finds: shells, pebbles, feathers, a lovely bead....
I made the sandeffect on the painting below with watercolour pencil and sandpaper, creating fine particles on the damp surface of the paper.

  10. I like both, the smooth soft background on the first and the fine texture on the second. And both have your delicate, fluid style!

  11. Judy - I know I can't resist collecting shells when visiting the beach. You did a super job capturing the feel of sand with your watercolor pencil sanding. Lovely detail adds great texture to this piece. Hope you are having a super day.
