20″ x 16″ Beach Girl, encaustic on encausticbord
I first painted this “Little Beach Girl” in 2013 in watercolor. I wanted to do it again in encaustics to better capture the wet reflections and sparkle of a tiny girl walking on the wet sand as the tide pulls out. As in the first painting, the shadows and reflections allude to what is outside of the picture frame. They both have the dark shadow of one of the monolithic rocks at Bandon, Oregon.
