BLACK SANDS

Waves crashing on a black sand beach, a new land created from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. This is Iceland

I had longed to be able to master the peaks and troughs of crashing waves. I studied it over and over, the movement and the depths of colour from trough to peak , the shape of the wave as it builds up . I made it harder on myself now as I wanted to create it from above the surface of the Icelandic shallow seas.

I mastered it in the end….a force of my imagination. I try my best and hope you like it.

Using my layering of resin to create a base of shallow sea, I could only imagine what it would look like from above. I imagined the sea bed as uneven with shading and less rocky base as the waves neared the beach. I built up 2 layers of depth – a matt effect …and as the waves formed in my mind I added paints and inks in a irregular pattern as waves do….some advancing and others trailing behind. Mineral powders, chalk, sand, inks and crushed quartz crystal powder on the tip of a brush to the resin layers and added and taken away till perfect
