Beach Fence

Are they called beach fences?  You know - that fence that helps hold the sandy beach in place....

This is one scene that could be painted in several different ways.  I used thick paint and moved it and adjusted the juicy strokes all through the process.    Like icing a cake!


It started this way.  Using the "fat over lean" thought, I painted rich thick paint over an old underpainting.  

this is the second stage, with apologies for the glaring photo.

  1. Love it, Robin! The shapes and lines of the fence and the cast shadows make such a striking painting.
