Down by the seashore...
I have been working on this pair of beach
canvases for several nights. They are on
canvas, which I painted blue first.
Then I added the painted strips, the camel
brown, and the black. The white marble
is a collaged piece of paper. Then I
enhanced the photo of the beach from
Costa Rica, and cut it. And then glued it
in place. The shells in a row were drawn
first, and then I scanned and copied them.
I coated them with gesso, and placed them
face down; burnished them, and lifted off
the paper. The gesso will transfer a copied
image onto whatever surface you put it on...
I just learned that! Anyway, I may still
tweak them a little...not quite happy yet.
