Silver Tide - a twist on the usual.

DescriptionWhen I saw this stunning reference photo from an unknown photographer, I was strongly drawn to it and felt it would make a lovely seascape artwork. And it proved - I love the how the sunbeams light up the sand and am pleased with how the sea, sand and sunlight have turned out. As you can see from my artwork on progress photos, I pay great attention to the details and that is what, I like to think, makes this special.
It is completed using soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum colourfix paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail, and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed painting.
