Acrylics on canvas. 50*70 cm (it looks like I'm starting to paint larger)
It is done after a photo I found in the library:

Beautiful job on both the rocks and the sand! Oh and I see some shells too! Such difficult subjects, in my opinion, to which you've done much justice. Fantastic! :thumbsup:

A...toothbrush! :D
Lol, thats right, i first applied a layer of pinkish colors, and then, using toothbrush i sprayed little amounts of white, brown, yellow and grey, trying not to be uniform, using brown and white to work on light and shadow.

Nice painting, pretty in a rocky sort of way.

Toothbrush...I have three in my brush cup.

I used to use the toothbrush for such a nice speckled effect when I worked in acrylic and that's the one thing I haven't been able to do successfully in oils.

I was hoping you'd say something different so I'd get another idea..but I guess I'll have to keep trying.
