Beach Day, Beach and Ocean Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Image
20" x 24", Oil, $800
Painting 34 of CHALLENGE 56
Countless layers of paint make up this scene, as did countless compositions. Four days of painting, scraping, paper-towelling, lightly adding layers, and ever so slightly tweaking, and finally I think I found the stopping point. I wanted to show the reflection of the sky on the wet sand, as well as the grasses on the border of the beach. And I wanted to achieve some abstraction while developing a softer beach scene. Lastly, I worked for color harmony.

For this painting I first made a monoprint, then added some acrylic paints,  and finally, some hand made papers. I am enjoying the pull toward abstraction and ambiguity, or perhaps, complexity.
