Lovely frothy water, I can feel it on my bare feet. Very nice painting, Carole.

You are both very kind for your comments, thanks so much.

I am so impressed with this work Carole. You paint such delicate botanical watercolours and then you come up with these wonderful pastels. I love the gorgeous colours you have used and the freedom of your strokes is such a delight to my eyes. PS How do you find the Fisher paper?

Jeanette, what a kind comment, thank you. I like the paper because it holds the colour better, not as much surplus dust. Also doesn't eat up so much pastel as the Colourfix, which I find a bit too course. Says me with virtually no pastel experience! I see in Jackson,s new catalogue the Fisher has gone up in price so not cheap. Shall save it for 'special' occasions! Haha.

Masterful meeting of sand and surf - something for me to aspire to. This is a fresh and energy-filled painting!
