Polychromos coloured pencils on white Canson pastel board 60 x 40 cm
My first true, tropical abstract is ready for framing and I found this drawing particularly satisfying to create, so much so that I’ve begun another, quite different one.
As with all of my abstract work, this one is based on the landscape. This time it’s a section of sand and water from Etty Bay, not far from Innisfail in Far North Queensland.
There are 3 distinct layers in this drawing.
Bottom: Fine grains of sand. Top: Fragmented foam floating on water. The middle layer is based on the bubbles one sees where waves break on sand.
The colour palette is deliberately bright, representing the tropical location.
On Monday I will post the first article and photo of my next ‘tropical abstract’.
Tomorrow: An update from my Glover Diary.
