OSWOA - Beachcomber I

This morning I was watching The Weather Network on television and they were showing a video of the surf crashing on shore and it made me think if this painting, that I had started last year (see post on 15 September 2013).

I started at the horizon line and gradually made the wave lines larger until I had a breaker starting to crest, then I put in the trough and the receding waves on the shore.

I scattered some seaweed across the beach that had been washed in by the waves.

After looking at the drawing, while taking a break and having a cup of tea I decided that it needed a lighthouse on a spit of land.
