Seagrass and sand is an abstract seascape.  The original was done on paper as one of a set of 4 small paintings from the Seafoam Collection.  The paintings were prepared over a dark ground and using wet on wet technique they were painted forward from dark to light.  Scratches in the surface layer reveal the dark ground underneath.  These represent the seagrasses on the beach.  The painting is influenced by the sea – the moving, rolling, foaming sea as it crashes and melts into the sand on the shore of the beach.    The colours are ones that I love to use and include turquoise, prussian blue, ochre yellow, white and magenta.  Once the painting was complete, Seagrass and Sand was named for ochre yellow in the foreground of the painting.  This is the beach with the reeds of grass waving from the dunes.


Seagrass and Sand is influenced by my childhood holidays at the beach.  As you walked onto the hot sand through the dune opening you would pass the matted sea grasses that held the dunes and the pink wild flowers as the blue of the sea, the smell of the sea air and the call of the gulls would draw you down on to the beach.
