Mellon Udrigle Beach

I like it Val. The only thing I would suggest, to give a feel of recession, would be to darken the foreground, the sand getting lighter as it recedes.

Looks beautiful Val. I like the sand colours giving ridges and the glass beads work very well. As you say the sky is brilliant!

I can only do abstract acrylics as find it really difficult to work with. I agree with you that the sky is good and I like the water flowing over thelittle stones
