THE END OF A WINTER’S DAY ON BIRKDALE BEACH – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

p10203691

I am getting together for another exhibition of local landscapes which feature the land between the Mersey and Ribble Estuaries. Here is one I’ve just done of the local beach,  where to many of the locals’ dismay, the marram grass is taking over. As it grows it traps windblown sand creating little islands amid the residual tidal water. It is rather ironic that where they let the cars on the beach, much to the irritation of others, the plant cant get a foothold and the flat sands stretch out seemingly forever. I must say I like this variation of the beach.

BIRKDALE VILLAGE ON A WINTER’S MORNING

BIRKDALE VILLAGE ON A WINTER'S MORNING

This is an acrylic painting I did of Birkdale village in Southport Merseyside where I live. Part of the pavement is undercover, casting shadows on the tiled pavement. With the sunlight reflecting off the shop windows and other shadows cast by trees and posts it presented an interesting image. I have just uploaded this onto my website grahammcquadefineart.com.
