Hello everyone. Seasons have changed, and we are now in the last quarter of the year. That means many parts of the world will have cooler temperatures, and a beach may not be the best place right now😒.
This painting is part of my art class work. I used acrylic paint. I mixed some grainy stuff with the paint colour for the beach to create that textured look. I used a spatula to paint this part of the beach. As it dries very fast, I had to work relatively quickly. The next challenge was the waves. I needed to get the motion effect as well as the rise and fall of tides. As a final, personal touch, I had the three beach umbrellas with the beach towels at the lower right-hand corner. Here, I imply that my gals and I are beneath those umbrellas😉🤣.
I painted my beach with pink-hued sand instead of a beige-coloured one. I have been to many beaches in many parts of the world with varied colours of sand. It is hard to find a quiet beach. Once I had to swim from a boat towards the shore as the beach was not accessible via land. That was exciting as I was swimming in the sea. It was thrilling😅.
The colour of the sea varies in different places. I love the turquoise colour of the sea. But I don’t think I managed to get the colour. I find the ocean fascinating, being calm and serene and then becoming fierce and furious. Hence, never venture out without checking the weather forecast😒😒.
In life, we will always have up and downs, just like the waves of the sea. Some events can be turbulent, but that will pass, and life will have some calm moments. Sometimes we do feel that the turbulence is never-ending. During such moments, ride the wave, as many surfers will do to stay afloat🙂, otherwise you will drown😢.
Many of you had delightful memories of going to the beach. I was thrilled to read that this painting evoked pleasant memories. Until the next musing, find a beach to relax😎😎.
