486  Beach essentials

91x122cm , acrylic on stretched canvas, ready to hang

Celebrating and assembling all the essential elements of a beach: endless big blue sky,
warm tropical sea as far as the eye can see, breaking waves against the sandy shore, silky smooth soft sand.

As an artist, having decided to create images rather than compete with the camera, I prefer to
extract the essential elements of a place and organise it according to my artistic sensibilities. 
The result is often an abstract or semi-abstract artwork, which no longer has distracting,
unimportant details of the surface appearance of the source scene.  This painting is a typical example of this approach.
