Barnacled Pebble Painting

April 2021- Acrylic on watercolour paper, mounted on cradled panel

This painting was inspired by a walk on Cadboro Bay Beach at low tide, where there were a number of rocks with barnacles in the sand. The composition was developed as I added rocks to the painting, with sea foam creating the triangular boundary at the left.

The sand was stippled with a toothbrush (spray) and a stiff paintbrush (larger dots).
