This is the first one I tried placing the sand on. The painting is one I revisited with pan pastels. That didn't quite do it so I added the sand. More color, more white and finally a lot of scratching. The mood is what we see here on the Sunshine Coast a lot of the time in the winter.
The painting is done on a wood panel. Painted on the sides so it can sit on a table or hang on the wall without a frame.
