I love the beach. I'm not much for sunbathing though. I like to observe the sounds, smells and movements of water, sand and people. I also like to photograph what I observe in hopes of capturing some part of the actual experience.
This 12x9 pastel was a challenge in the format I choose. I wanted to convey the vastness of space and the openness of the environment. Dealing with the lower 2/3s of the composition was fun in that I had to be more abstract because there wasn't anything but space. Space is what I like about the beach so I wanted to try to convey it. This is one for me to try again and again.
