THE BIRKDALE DUNES AT DUSK – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I did a sketch of this in an earlier blog and decided to have a go as a painting. I like the ethereal feeling the light gives and I managed to get the shimmer on the foreground marram grasses by scratching out rather than using masking fluid as I did in the sketch. For me, this approach yields a more dynamic and varied result.

I also tried to enhance the diagonal sweep of the dune forms to try and inject some dynamism to an otherwise staid subject.

Other beach scenes are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
