Today I have a new painting to the watercolour gallery. Ebb tide was great fun to do with wet-in-wet washes and fine details on the rocks and pebbles. The perspective is key to pulling you into the painting and give you a feeling of being on the beach. The sea is drawing back before the next wave comes in and light from the sky highlights patches here and there. There are many types of rocks and pebbles including granite and chert; a fine-grained sedimentary rock which often contains fossils.
