Good morning world.

Ebb Tide and Morning Sands   Oils on canvas board   5 x 7 inches   

Light in the sky, sea and land.  Abstracted shapes in this tonal study.   

I have found it often pays to place the paint and leave it without fussing.  But pulling it down here and there with the brush to the bottom of the board gives an impression of standing water.  Then a quick flourish with a loaded brush or knife creates the highlights and sparkle.

A final tweak with a sharp edged angle brush lifts the beach highlight slightly
 and with a quick wiggle it drops down as I guide it to form a rivulet.  

Happy Greetings on Christmas Day
