Awaiting the tide

Awaiting the tide   23x23cm watercolour    ©2012Lisa Le Quelenec

I love the patterns left by the tide in the sand. The ripples where water collects, reflecting the sky, makes a lovely contrast in tone with the darker sand especially during the early evening as the light mellows and shadows turn purple hued.

This painting is included in the Hayloft Gallery Christmas show. The exhibition is open until 20th December and is open 10 - 4pm.

Gorgeous! I love the strong shadows and the trails in the sand. The colours are wonderful. I'm sure this will sell in an instant.

You've captured a lot of drama and interest in the sand! Beautiful!

Great painting Lisa. I too marvel at the way the sand reflects the movement of the water that once covered it.

Hi Jeanette, thank you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed ;o)

Thank you Rhonda, it was nice to get some warm colours out. I could paint those patterns all day.

Hello Jeffrey and welcome. It's fascinating how the gentlest of movements can create such intricate patterns isn't it? Thank you for visiting.
