“The urge to destroy is also a creative urge.” – Pablo Picasso
This painting was started one year ago as a sunset beach scene, it was put aside because I couldn’t see where it was going. I almost tossed it out, but I figured one of these days I’ll figure it out and paint right over the original ~ one of these days happened this past week and Picasso’s quote couldn’t have been more spot-on.
Sand Dunes, an acrylic painting (20×16) was painted on a gesso-prepared hardboard using golden brand acrylics. I really enjoyed working on the painting this second time, without rushing I took my time developing the dunes, the sky and water. It felt like I was right there feeling the warm sea breeze, making my way down to the shore watching the waves come ashore ~ even if I am sitting in Texas!
