I originally called this painting "Look What I've Found !". It won a prize for favourite painting in show in an exhibition last August. It is of course Scarborough beach again - but idealised. The pebbles in the foreground were done by spraying on masking fluid with a toothbrush, allowing it to dry and painting over a wash of watercolour paint. Then repeat the process over and over again (in this picture 5 times) and each time increasing the darkness of the paint. Then you peel all the masking fluid off in a thick mat and just shade and detail a few of the front pebbles.
