Low Tide at the Races 48x36x1.5 Acrylic on canvas
Low Tide At The Races was painted with the vision to show the ground and sand reflecting the sky at low tide. I’ve used a limited color palette to create a mood that mimics cooler weather and a northern feel. I used a palette knife to create the masts of the sailboats and the flock of seagulls. It takes two carefully placed swipes of the palette knife to create each bird… and over 40 years painting experience.👩🎨🎨 I added little sailboats towards the middle because it’s low tide in the foreground. The boats add movement to the painting! ⛵⛵⛵⛵
I grew up painting with oils – I use acrylics like I use oils and enjoy painting with my hands because it connects me to the painting.
