Leaving the grotto

Anne Dean

Painted as an entry into You Paint It competition, featured in the SAA magazine. I used wet into wet technique for the sky and rocks, dropping colour in to create texture and shadow in the latter. I used smooth strokes for the calm sea adding two or three layers to create the shadow and reflection of the rocks. Finally I painted the dinghy and figures then used a fine brush to add movement and reflections. I love the sea and this subject reminded me of a holiday in Spain where we had sailed along the coast dipping in and out of caves in a small boat - magical.
