1279 'Kayak Point'
9" x 12" acrylic on masonite
Kayak point in Washington is where we went for a days outing at the beginning of the school holidays, and although overcast and slightly drizzley, we enjoyed a pleasant day wandering along the beach. The beach was strewn with drift wood, beautiful shapes and silvery colours, seaweedy rocks and little pools where crabs hid.
For this painting I used only a painting knife and although sometimes I was itching to use a brush, I managed to accomplish it without. The far distant Island is not as blue as in the photograph but I couldn't seem to adjust the colour without turning the rest of the painting either pink or green!
