By the water's edge

By NeoNative
Watercolor 2016. Rammsjöstrand, Sweden.
This is a painting of the water's edge at this stony beach of Rammsjöstrand. The stones were covered in green algiers and red seaweed which were reflected through the clear water. I wanted to try to capture that in a painting. This is the result and I hope you like it!

Thank you Linda for telling me!! ❤️I worked hard with trying to capture some transparency in the water and with the colours of the stones.

Hey! Thanks a lot! I wanted to create a feeling of transparency where the stones "disappear" into the water. I'm really happy you like it! Heart

I really love your water scenes. I find your use of colour very pleasing to the eyes.
And in this particular painting I can practically see how the water is rolling in.

Tack så mycket! Det var just färgerna av tången och algerna i vattnet samt en känsla av transparens närmast stranden som jag ville uttrycka. Det var en riktig utmaning! Ha en fin dag!Heart Hug

Thanks a lot for your kind words! I wanted to use a somewhat different palette than I'm used to and I'm glad you like it! Heart

Great piece. Love the sharp details on the rocks and the colours you've added to the sea in the foreground! Well done!

Thank you! I wanted the water closest to the beach to feel transparent. This was a real challenge and I'm really happy you like it! Heart :D (Big Grin)
