Here I am again with my latest mixed media canvas: At the beach.
I had long wished to make a canvas about beach with beach huts. And now here it is one!
This picture was inspired by my other picture of street with houses and cars.
With this canvas I would like to participate in a challenge at the Country View Crafts Blog: Simply Scenic.
Most of the elements were cut out with dies, except the umbrella, the rays of the sun and the roofs of the huts.
I was lucky because I had "Sand" paint at home which contains fine grains so my sandy beach looks quite realistic.
