Panel two of three.

While visiting the San Clemente area I spent a lot of time roaming the shores at low tide and fell in love with the movement and ever changing scene of the tide pools which inspired this triptych entitled Looking Past the Surface.  In creating this piece, I predominantly used a palette knife in very loose strokes to give a sense of the constant movement of sand and water.

The second canvas of the triptych zooms closer into the scene with an individual tide pool showcasing exposed rock, a blue chasm of water, and plant and shell material floating just below the shallow surface of the water.

A watercolor sketch I created to help me with this large piece, to see how the color would flow from one panel to the next.
