Walk on the Beach

Walk on the Beach
9" x 12"
acrylic on paper

This new painting is a departure for me, using a figure and a more realistic scene. Aiming to do a solid black silhouette walking on the sand, my technique did not turn out the way I planned (I know--why plan?!).

But instead of blocking out the figure with more Payne's Gray, I decided I liked it and  simply outlined the walker. I like to think that the figure is becoming more part of the natural scene the more she walks.
