Re: Beneath the pier
Hi Kate, Suzanne, Mike, Karl, Jan, Ernst and Shadye - Thankyou all so much for taking the time to ccomment on this.
It's not the sort of painting you would want to hang on your wall - but, like you Shadye, I have a bit of a thing about piers - especially the supporting structure, with the seaweed hanging off it and the reflections in the wet sand etc
The sand is just raw Sienna with a smidge of burnt sienna and French ultra - then splattered, spotted and dabbed with a watery mix of the 2 darker colours!
