This painting was started with alcohol ink on canvas. I let it dry and applied clear gesso. I used this painting as a demo for Mint Hill Arts in which I added oil paint. I previously posted the result of the end of the demo. Since then I have worked on the piece with a palette knife it give it more texture. I mixed gold foil with cold wax to add some sparkle to the sand. See close up below.
